Community Awareness Program held on December 06 & 07, 2012 at Pourahi VDC of Rautahat District
Nepal GoodWeave Foundation carried out a community/VDC level awareness program in Pourai VDC of RAUTAHAT district especially aiming at raising awareness among community people of that VDC about the consequences of child labour exploitation.

As a pilot basis, one event (2 days event) was conducted on December 06 & 07, 2012 at Bagmati School covering the community people in collaboration with the schools and stakeholders of that community/VDC. This place was selected, based on the NGF data, from where most of the child labour has been sent to carpets. There were 40 participants in the consultation including concerned stakeholders and Community People whereas approximately 500 people were involved in mass awareness.

Activities conducted for 2 days:

Day 1 (Dec 06,2012): Stakeholders Consultation

Day 2 (Dec 07, 2012): Mass Awareness.

The main goal of this program is to stop potential rural children aged between 8 and 14 years at the very root from entering the labour force in the Nepalese carpet industry and to provide them with opportunity for education and giving them their childhood. Also, the program aimed to prevent and discourage the community people of potential child labourers from sending their children to work in carpet industry by making them aware and involving them in awareness programme on various issues like child labour and child rights, health, hygiene, sanitation, environment, HIV/AIDS, gender, human trafficking, family planning etc. Additionally, the program also aimed to inform and sensitize the stakeholders (community leaders, VDC secretary, CBOs, NGOs and local political leaders) about the current situation of child labour, its causes and consequences, and how they can contribute to stop this.
