Fight Back Training to Visually Impaired Women

Published on: August 22, 2021

Prayatna Nepal successfully completed 5 days of Training on Fight Back among 11 visually impaired women temporarily residing in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and the Lalitpur district. The training was conducted in the hall of DAV school, Jawlakhel, Lalitpur from 17th-21st August 2021. It was facilitated by the teams of Fight Back Private Limited.

In Nepal, visually impaired women are often at risk of sexual and physical violence, harassment, and assault in the different spheres of their surroundings. In order to reduce the risk and make them skillful with the techniques of fight back, the training was conducted. The participants were oriented on Good Touch and Bad Touch, Fear Management, Maintaining Social Media Security followed by practical sessions on fight back techniques.

Participants realized the importance of such training after being a part of it. They shared that in their daily life, they are at more risk to sexual and physical violence from their own family members and relatives and they had to move alone outside to run their daily livelihood and this sort of skillful training could help them to tackle with possible harassment and violence. Along with this, participants requested to circulate this training to remote areas of Nepal where visually impaired women are more vulnerable to violence and abuse.

Prayatna Nepal would like to thank Fight Back Private Limited for their wonderful facilitation in a disability-friendly environment. Special thanks to Women Fund Asia for the funding contribution.
