    Mobilization of Media Consumer Women’s Groups

    Currently,ASMITA is executing the project entitled “Mobilization of Media Consumer Women’s Groups” with the support of WACC since June 2010. In fact, the project is the follow-up program of media literacy campaign, executed by ASMITA with WACC support in previous years. Media literacy campaign has formed media consumer women’s groups (MCWG) in the districts. It was needed to effectively mobilize these groups to achieve the long term goal of the campaign- making media more democratic, accountable and gender sensitive; and to protect and expand already achieved results. Accordingly, the project has been lunched in two districts of Nepal- Banke and Sunsari. Till the date, 8 programs have been launched in Banke and Sunsari. Most of the participants of these programs were social activists, political activists, teachers, health workers, students and home managers as well from different strata of the society including third gender, single women, conflict widows, ethnic rights activists etc. Those eight programs are as following:
