The Kamlahari Practice Abolition Project in Nepal

Summary

Case study presentation from the STRIVE symposium "Keeping families and children together through economic strengthening". The case study titled "Enhancing economic capacity for resilience against bonded servitude: The Kamlahari Practice Abolition Project in Nepal" presented the work of Plan International in Nepal to abolish the domestic child labor system where poor families give away girls to work as servants. This feudal system of oppresion and bonded servitude, called Kamlahari is still practiced by one particular ethnic group in Nepal. Parents are landless and illiterate and have traditionally given daughters away into the Kamlahari system. Plan International has been working with the government to abolish the practice and to empower young girls.
