      ‘Sahi Ho!’ is campaign that raises awareness, challenges barriers and highlights women’s empowerment and gender equality issues at national and sub-national levels Implemented by Equal Access with support from UN Women .

      It is a campaign launched in the Nepal with the aim to raise awareness about women's economic empowerment and leadership. Under this, it provide information about the contents of the community and government to reach the reach of the community, equitable and secure work, earning income, earning and leadership of the women through information related to content related to broadcasting from different social networks, radio and TV programs.

          

        Research conducted by UN Women and more recently Equal Access has highlighted that women in Nepal are mostly engaged in home-based, unpaid and unrecognised labour. Those that do attempt to access more employment and leadership opportunities outside the home face deeply rooted social biases, structural barriers, gender-based discrimination, and violence from their families, communities and the markets. Women make up just over half of the population in Nepal but there is lack of employment opportunities and limited access to economic resources .

 

Women can also contribute to the construction of rich Nepal by using their maximum skills and efficiency in the case of opportunity given. This campaign’s determination is be identify and respect the work of women. Its goals are to raise awareness on gender-based discrimination and structural barriers hindering women’s leadership roles in economic activities in households, communities and labourmarkets in the local context; bring about policy changes that are sensitive to the needs of women by advocating strongly for gender sensitive plans and policies; and promote increased participation and representation of rural women farmers in local level decision-making process through community-level awareness raising and policy advocacy.

 

        The campaign will focus on advocacy, policy influencing and community engagement at both the national and local level.

I went to the orientation of youTH on July 22nd and it was the first time I heard about this program and I really feel good that I attended that orientation . It inspire me to do something in life , to use my skill for the developing technology , to interact with strangers and I am excited about the idea to become a volunteering icon. It is making a more united, fraternal, stronger society, which society is better able to face the challenges of tomorrow.


  Speaking in front of people is an exercise that intimidate me. But it is also the opportunity for me to develop more confidence in myself.  interaction and communication is most for the success in life cause it creates a way toward the betterment of own self. So i feel youTH can make me successful in the way to develop self confidence and overcome my weakness and to enhance my skill .

For myself, I see the importance of new technologies in our life. I see a lot of mobile apps that make a difference in our days. technology is used in daily life and to live a life without technology for today's generation is just like impossible. To advance the technology and make it convenient is what is needed for today's word.


In my short experience, I know it is good to know what are ours strengths and weaknesses. When we know them, we could adjust yourself to took better decisions by doing the right moves. In front of our weaknesses, it is a wise idea to ask the help of others. If we work together, our strengths add up and our weaknesses are compensated.youTH helps to work in a group and increase awareness among community and to make a mentality to create a better world.

  youTH teach us how we should never give up our dreams . youTH help in our personality development and teach us to interact with each other. youTH provide platform for the youth and their innovative ideas . youTH can make you successful.
