    KATHMANDU, Dec. 10 (Xinhuanet) -- A non-government organization of Nepal has organized a door-to-door program Saturday against domestic violence in different districts of Nepal, an official of the organization said Saturday.

    "Nepal Scout (NS), with the assistance of United Nations Fund for Population Activities, has organized the program in order to discuss the problem of domestic violence and create public awareness about it," Shreeram Lamichhane, chief commissioner of NS, told Xinhua.

    About 15,000 scouts have been mobilized in 30,000 houses for the program in seven districts, Lamichhane revealed.

    NS members will also reach doorsteps with a campaign to know the aspirations of community after a week of a door-to-door visit program, Lamichhane said.

    "There is the need of maintaining solidarity to prevent all forms of violence against women in the society. We are planning to extend the same programs, after a couple of months, in 60 districts of the country through the network of NS," Lamichhane noted

    NS on Friday organized a workshop on "Campaign against Women Violence in Nepal" with an objective of informing about the program for scout members of the respective district, the official said. Enditem
