Mobile counselling camps are organized in order to create an emotional safer space for girls
and women working in entertainment sectors to make them realize that they are heard. It is also our approach to make first
contact in individual level with them in their own work place. These groups of women are
further supported through regular counselling services, empowerment sessions, legal
support, IGA support, vocational training, shelter support and job placement on need basis.
Our beneficiaries can’t come to us because of time, control of owners and distance. Therefore
we go close to their working place. Mobile counselling camp helps us to reach in all major
geographical areas of Kathmandu and also helps us to know the situations and changing trends in entertainment sectors. Reaching wider numbers of beneficiaries and providing
onsite need base support even though limited resources is possible through this camp.
