Tika’s Story

“Now I don’t hesitate to speak!” says Tika Dalarmi – but for thirty years she didn’t leave her home. Tika experienced the challenges that many Nepali women face – from social norms that confine them to the home, family, motherhood and housework to lack of access to property, income, education and courage to change their lives.

Oxfam’s Raising Her Voice programme is a simple approach that has transformed the lives of women like Tika in 17 countries across the world.
