Project Problem Details
Musahar is one of the under-privileged living group of Terai, Nepal. This community is mostly found in Rautahat and Sarlahi district. There are approximately 2 lakhs Musahar in Nepal. This group usually does not have their own land and they collect rice grains stored by rats on its nest for survival. Besides this, they engage in agriculture in the landlord’s land. They are considered to be untouchable group by the other communities and are dominated in each and every sectors i.e. school, health post, etc. which also aids the community lacking in education and proper hygienic knowledge. Only 22% of Musahar were literate to a basic level (census 2011). None of the Musahar children were found going to school, neither their parents seem worried about their education. The level of awareness was so pathetic that they never care about wearing shoes or washing hands. They seem to be expecting some kind of donation from every new visitor. The situation of Musahar is too critical that they could not afford their children for their schooling and since most do not finish primary school. Poverty is the main cause that prevent them to upgrade their family status. The future of poor Musahar is in darkness. Due to a lack of education even they have no knowledge about their basic health. Majority of them even lack the awareness about the importance of education.
