Steps Foundation held their 4th 'Women's Empowerment Work Shop' at Mountain People Centre, Nepal.
Special guest, Indira Rana Magar (nationally renowned for prison social work) backed Beni Rani Ghale's ongoing campaign to ban/restrict raw alcohol sales in the villages.
"Alcohol is behind the increasing number of rapes and gender violence we are experiencing. It is bad for body and mind, for family and destroys social harmony.'
Beni has instigated 'alcohol free zones' where Steps members confiscate and destroy bottles with high alcohol % content before it reaches the villages.'
Beni, ever controversial, is receiving strong support for her "Alcohol free zones' initiative - a First in Nepal.
