It is found that the district level women rights policy network members are somehow conceptually cleared on the concept of network and its functioning mechanism. They have been taking initiative in utilizing the locally available funds for women leadership and capacity development skill based trainings in districts and VDCs but are lagging behind in getting the funds thus they are demanding technical and strategic facilitation and supports from the district partner organizations and Jagaran Nepal in coming days. Since the project has been making its space in leadership development role at VDC level also, they are demanding the continuation of the program even at ward level in coming days.
