December 8: Unilever Nepal Limited and Maiti Nepal have announced collaboration to create employment opportunities for victims of human trafficking and domestic violence in the country. The collaboration aims to enhance their social, economic and legal capacity by providing the victims, especially women, with adequate training.
The main aim of this collaboration is to provide opportunities to generate sustainable income for targeted women.
