We also can do it

This short video case story gives a glimpse of the experience that women in Jumla went through in the construction of trail bridges. The odds were piled against them. Their unending household chores, the non-cooperation from community members who sometimes even stopped them from using local resources, and the taxing physical labour that went with bridge construction! They fought it all.

Until now, 5 trail bridges have been constructed by women in Jumla. Proud as they are of their accomplishment, they are also confident that if they stand united, they will be able to attain success in any kind of development activities!
