Women’s Trek for Peace and Development

An activity for and by women in Nepal from March 6-21, 2008

CECI offers women concerned with women issues, a unique opportunity to participate in a human adventure, from villages to villages in the heart of the Himalaya: A personal challenge, a rich moment of exchanges, a gesture of solidarity.

They are seeking participants of health professionals and development practitioners to conduct sanitation and hygiene awareness sessions, while the community women will be invited to share their knowledge and practice of indigenous medicinal plants and healing methods. Discussions will deal with the promotion of women’s role in the well-being of their community through improved health awareness, as well as with the current traditional practices and medicines used by Nepalese women.  More information on the project is available as well as the itinerary.
