Cash/material support for 60 Women Human Rights Defenders with Disabilities
Access Planet has provided cash/ material support of equivalent to NPR 5,000 each to 60 young women human rights defenders with disabilities who are working as campaigners in women and disability rights sector across the country.
Young women human right defenders with disabilities are working for protecting and promoting rights and need of themselves and as well as that of other women with disabilities in the community. However in the current pandemic, these defenders have been facing difficulties in managing their basic needs and hence have been facing difficulties to move the campaign forward.
Thus the cash support was provided to young women human rights defenders with disabilities as a source of encouragement and help to fulfill their basic needs.
The cash support was provided to these women with the fulfillment of following criteria:
- Unemployed young women with disabilities working in the sector of disability or women rights, board member of organization of persons with disabilities.
- The young women with disabilities working in the sector of disability rights who are of 18 to 30 years of age.
We are hopeful that this small support has been helpful for these young women during the time of current pandemic.
Access Planet is very grateful to Urgent Action Grant for understanding the difficulties faced by young women human rights defenders with disabilities during the time of this crisis and funding this initiative.
