National Women Commission (NWC) has been implementing a World Bank funded project initiative ‘Integrated Platform for Gender Based Violence (GBV) Prevention and Response in Nepal’ to improve responses to Gender Based Violence in Nepal. The project seeks to meet its objective by improving the quality and reach of services for GBV survivors through a helpline while promoting greater awareness among key stakeholders and strengthening the capacity of NWC.
The helpline named ‘Khabar Garaun 1145’, a major component of the project, provides round the clock service to GBV survivors to register the cases either through the toll free number or helpline website. NWC then refers the registered cases to the concerned GBV service providers that provide legal, psychosocial, child protection and shelter services.
