Women’s team headed for Kalapathar at Namche

Solukhumbu. The women’s team has reached Namche on a 13-day trek with the objective of drawing attention to the effects of climate change.

On the occasion of International Women’s Day on March 8 this year, 40 women from different regions have set out on a trek to Kalapathar.

Prajita Karki, the chairperson of Sathsatha, said that women from different walks of life will jointly march to Kalapathar under the slogan ‘Women United for Climate Justice’.

She hopes that the rise in global temperatures will help to raise awareness about the increasing melting of snow in the mountains, the drying up of water sources, and its direct impact on women.

“We will discuss the impact of climate change, especially on the lives of women, and the initiatives to be taken to seek justice in it,” she said. “Women working in the various field including doctors, journalists, and engineers, including Supreme Court Judge Sapna Pradhan Malla, are participating in the campaign,” Karki said.

On International Women’s Day, March 8, at 7:15 am, in the presence of a special person, the program will be held in Kalapathar and the declaration will be issued, said Chairperson Karki.
