Inclusive Partnership on Violence against Girls and Women with Disability in Nepal

In this project, NDWA leads the activities for advocacy on issues related to disability and valances among disabled girls and women with the government counterpart and the stakeholders at the community level. GTN leads the activities related to assessment inclusiveness in the One Step Crisis Management Centers (OCMC), and conducting baseline and final evaluation.
