Current Projects

1. Preventing Child Domestic Worker - The One World Foundation, Bulgaria

CWISH in partnership with The One World Foundation has promoted its initiative to prevent child domestic worker Nepal. It has developed an approach to mobilize the local as well as district level child protection mechanisms in Kavrepalanchok, one of the source districts, as preventive measures to reduce the migration of the children potentially to be exploited as child domestic workers in Kathmandu valley, destination city. At the same time, actions are designed to monitor the situation in Kathmandu valley and contribute to rescue of the children at risk or exploited their rights (any form of abuse, violence, neglect, child labour) and rehabilitated to their family or safe destination if they don’t have their parents. The direct target of this project is to contribute to the life of the 20 children who are at risk of violence, abuse or exploitation. Similarly, we are contributing to reduce the unnecessary separation of the children from their family. The project is designed to implement in the demand district i. e. Kathmandu valley and supply district Kavrepalanchok. The duration of the project is 12 months from January 2017 to December 2017.

 

2. Enhancing Child Protection System in Nepal (ECPS)


3. Promoting Children's Right to Parental Care in Nepal - ATOS
Children living away from home are increasing and have reached more than one million number up to the age of 15. Similarly, institutional care homes in the cities like Kathmandu are also increasing and they are institutionalizing the ineligible children as well. The facilitating factors like rumours (private education, hostel facilities) and brokers who make money by bridging the rural children and their parents to institutional care homes are catalyst for unnecessary separation of the children from their family. The separation and institutionalization of children foster vulnerability to them. The risk for child separation in rural village is being increased because of the rumour (private education, hostel facilities) as well. Similar context in Jharlang, Reegaun, Gumdi, Darkha and Satyadevi VDCs of Dhading district has largely affected the children's rights to parental care. Realizing the need of action to reduce the unnecessary separation of the children from their family and initiatives to reintegrate the unnecessarily separated children, CWISH in Partnership with ATOS, Denmark has launched the project entitled, "Promoting Children's Rights to Parental Care" in the above mentioned 5 VDCs of Dhading district. This project funded by CISU is being implemented in Dhading since March 2016 to September 2017.

5. Communication and Social Mobilization for promoting recovery and resilience among earthquake affected Communities  - AATWIN
Aiming to reduce human trafficking and gender based violence and to achieve the better preparedness by communicating for disaster risk reduction and ensure the safe migration, CWISH together with AATWIN has been implementing the project entitled, " Communication and Social mobilisation for promoting recovery & resilience among earthquake affected communities" in nine VDCs (Jharlang, Gumdi, Darkha, Satyadevi, Maidi, Reegaun, Jogimara, Dhusa, Gajuri) of Dhading district since April, 2016 to December, 2017. CWISH has mobilized ccommunity-based organizations and young people of intervention areas by providing them knowledge on disaster preparedness and issues that affect children and young people following disasters like human trafficking, gender-based violence and unsafe migration. Initially the young people together with the project outreach workers prepared for the community mobilization to empower the youths and their groups. Afterwards, they became able to identify potential local hazards in their communities and negotiate with existing community organizations to prepare ward level and community action plan. CWISH has mobilized the media and tools like forum theatre to promote the behavior change communication in the local level. This project has been funded by UNICEF.

9. Empowering Adolescents for Resilience Building in Earthquake Affected Districts
CWISH in partnership with Consortium Nepal has been implementing the project, "Empowering Adolescents for Resilience Building in Earthquake Affected Districts" to achieve the improved capacity of government system and other key stakeholders (especially children, adolescents, youth, families, NGOs and media) to promote actions for disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation and resilient within the project locality and their society. CWISH has targeted to empower the adolescents to promote them as change agent. We believe that they will transform from the traditional beliefs, practices, attitude and knowledge towards resilience (practices, knowledge and attitude) by educating and mobilizing the youths through life skills, rupantaran and behaviour change communication. This project is being implemented in 4 VDCs (Gumdi, Salyantar, Jarlang and Nalang) and Nilakantha municipality of Dhading District from September 2016 to October 2017 in the technical and financial support of UNICEF.
