With the theme “One House, One Woman, One Mobile” for Connecting Rural through Communication, a mobile throwing competition was organized in January with the objective of linking Mugu district to the Communication network. The event was organized by ICA Nepal in joint collaboration with the Rotary Club of Rudramati at Tudikhel, Kathmandu.
At the second phase of the event, 25 brand new mobile phones were distributed to the local rural women of Mugu District of the Mid- Western Region of Nepal. The aim of the event was to link the rural society to the technological world. Similarly on the occasion of International Human Rights Day, Dec 10, a mass gathering was organized at Accham. The program was coordinated by our local field team with Mr. Prem Bohora. The slogan for the event was “Our rights, Our freedom, Always.”
The team from ICA Nepal returned to Nepal after attending the ICA Asia Pacific Regional Meeting held at Pune with two more training opportunities for the empowerment of entrepreneurship among people and for building a more resilient society. The trainings are going to be conducted in the month of February.
ICA Nepal is entering into the New Year with new zeal and even more motivation. We would like to wish all, a very Happy New Year 2016. May this year bring balance to the world!
