Many women in Nepal encounter various forms of gender based discrimination including physical harassment, violence and assault. Especially, this is graver for visually impaired young women, as they rarely have access to any forms of discussion or information on dealing with or tackling different forms of harassment. Therefore, within this context, Prayatna Nepal has organized 3  fight back training on following date  and time: February 23- March 04 2016, 21-25 February 2017 and July 03-07-2019  for visually impaired women.

The objective of those trainings were  to enhance the capacities of visually impaired women so they can take action against harassment. Altogether 32 visually impaired women from different district were participated in that training.
