Netritwa (“Leadership” in Nepali) is a 1-year pilot project funded by the National Endowment for Democracy.

The goal of the project is to increase the participation of women leaders in decision-making, both at the national and local level.

The project includes gender-sensitivity trainings and leadership courses for women, in addition to mentorship from women leaders in Siraha. Built on a participatory model, the project involves men and other influential actors in society, working together to ensure women leadership and participation.
