The ‘Selfie with Daughter’ campaign has been launched in Nepal through a virtual programme on Sunday. The campaign, which was started in India by Sunil Jaglan, has gained immense popularity and has also received support from the Indian government.

The main aim of the campaign is to raise awareness on issues related to women’s empowerment and gender equality. The movement was formally launched virtually in Nepal through joint coordination of Selfie with Daughter Foundation, Nepal Internet Foundation and India Internet Foundation.

The chief guests of the virtual launch programme were Tazanna Shrestha from Nepal who is a Class 8 student and Anveshi Srimal from India who is currently studying in Class 9. During the launch young girls from both Nepal and India put forward their feelings and thoughts.

Bikram Shrestha, President of Nepal Internet Foundation, mentioned that traditions like the chhaupadi, which are against women, are still prevalent in Nepal and the ‘Selfie with Daughter’ campaign would help raise awareness on the importance and rights of daughters.

Former Minister for Information and Communications Technology, Ganesh Shah, who was a guest at the launch programme, mentioned that he would support the campaign in the best way he could.

The campaign has also launched a competition whereby any Nepali citizen can participate by taking a selfie with their daughter and submitting the photograph to the campaign.
