A two and half year pilot project ‘Promoting Human Dignity Project’ (PHDP) focuses on economic empowerment and girls’ education in the marginalized communities. It is expected that the partnership will strongly contribute in implementation of JuRI-Nepal’s Strategic Plan 2016-21 that has identified ESCR as one of the priorities for the next five years.
