Zonta Club Kathmandu distributes badges, translates booklet


The Zonta Club Kathmandu, Nepal, organized a series of programs to reach out to the community with information about violence against women. To raise awareness about the issue, the club distributed a badge on 18 November in the presence of elected member at CEDAW and Strategic Director of Saathi Bandana Rana, Miss Nepal 2016 Asmi Shrestha, Chari Maya Tamang and assistant dean and Faculty of law of Tribhuvan University and member of Supreme Court Bar Association Sashi Adhikari. The badges were worn by supporters, including men and women of all ages to show solidarity during the 16 Days of Activism.

Supporters from various organizations wore the badge to show their solidarity to the cause. The organizations ranged from banks, corporate houses, clinics, beauty clinics to other non-government organizations.

On 5 December the club, along with UN Women and National Information Commission, a government body, launched the English booklet “Information Related to Women’s Entitlements” as part of the 16 Days of Activism. The club supported the printing of the English version realizing the significance of it reaching out to a wider network.

From 25 November through 10 December, the Zonta Club Kathmandu has been posting relevant details on the Right to Information based on the booklet.
