In Nepal, a gender equal society does not yet exist, and the implications are far reaching. Gender inequality is at the root of social, economic, and legal inequalities. Such disparities restrict opportunities for people of all genders, hindering their access to basic rights and consequently, to live life to its full realm of possibilities.
Apeiron fights against prejudice, violence, and inequalities so that women develop the skills necessary to support themselves and their families.
Through 4 main areas of intervention identified by our Theory of Change: Gender Based Violence Prevention and Response, Awareness and Education, Income Generation, and Institutional Collaboration, we enable women to overcome constraining barriers in their life and realize their potential.
In response to the catastrophic earthquakes that struck Nepal in 2015, we have also been engaging in gender-sensitive humanitarian actions.
Because of our approach and our values, we have witnessed gender-based violence (GBV) survivors gain confidence from our training and use their newfound skills to negotiate improved roles in their households.
This visible progress inspires us to continue working for the equal and meaningful participation of women in Nepali households, communities, and society.
In addition to our commitment in Nepal, starting from 2019 we have also decided to work alongside women residing in Italy. We intend to contribute in a concrete way to the inevitable process of redefining patterns and models with projects aimed at encouraging female employment and the elimination of gender stereotypes, to ensure the affirmation of real equality.
