Purpose: Advocate for women's rights and anti-exploitation policy within the Nepali government and other Nepali institutions

• Lobby to various members of Nepal's government such as the PM, President, and Ministers.

Accommodations:

• Travel to/from Chhori will not be provided (i.e. airfare from UK to Nepal) and visa fees are not provided.
