Programs

Non-formal education (NFE) classes:

There are several NFE classes running in areas where skill development and income generation programs are running. These classes help educate the girls and women in high risk areas on reproductive health, HIV/AIDS and STDs, nutrition, and children. Currently, there are two classes running in Butwal where 40 women and girls are taking part of the program.


Rehabilitation center:

The Kathmandu rehabilitation home offers short term or long term care in a safe and loving Christian environment. At risk or trafficked victims are provided with health care services, counseling, and formal or non-formal education. This enables the girls to recover and prepare to be reintegrated into society with skills that empower them for their future. Currently there are 15 girls living in the home, however, this number will never be fixed.


Child care program:

Often when trafficked women are rescued, they come with children. These children are considered at risk without care from PRC. Since its foundation, PRC has looked after the children in the same shelter where those HIV positive patients and returnees are living. We feel strongly that there needs to be a separate home where the neediest can live.


Border monitoring program:

Currently, PRC has two border monitoring stations. One is in Krishnanagar in the southern part of Nepal and the other is in Dhangadhi, on the western border. These two sites have proved vital in the rescuing of girls before they are trafficked into India. PRC would like to open border patrol stations along all the major border cities of Nepal.


Skill development and income generation program:

PRC has established many programs throughout Nepal to provide empowering skills to at risk women. After receiving a skill, PRC provides seed money to the woman to start her own business, and ongoing assistance in cooperation with local churches.

Candle making program:

Launched in Kawasoti, Nawalparasi district, more than 20 women are now engaged in making candles. PRC first formed a committee of women from the local churches and then bought a candle making machine and provided raw materials to get started. The committee selects women trainees from the surrounding communities who are potentially at risk of being trafficked. They then organize trainings for these women. Income generated is used to create similar programs in the community.

Pig/goat/cow/chicken keeping:

To date, PRC has provided a total of 50 goats to financially empower women in at risk areas. The program is currently running in the Chitwan and Nawalparasi districts. This process begins when PRC forms a group of beneficiaries and provides a goat to one woman. In return, she has to share the first-born baby goat to the neighbor that the group recommended. The first goat remains in her possession. Each year this process multiplies as the goat continues to give birth. Due to this programs success, PRC would like to provide cows, pigs, buffalos and chickens to more at risk females.

Sewing and knitting:

Established in the Nawalparasi district, PRC provides sewing machines and trainers to teach women and girls the skill of sewing and knitting. This provides them with the ability to provide financially and be self sustained in their community.

Spices production:

In working with local church women in the Butwal area, PRC has provided machines and raw materials to produce spices for sale. This provides yet another income generating source for at risk women.

Driving classes:

In a male dominated field, PRC launched a driving training program for females. Recently, five girls from Chitwan district completely the course. PRC pays driving trainers for up to three months or until the women become completely trained. PRC believes that the girls who receive the drivers training will be able to get driving jobs easily.
