The ongoing development works at local levels in Taplejung district have witnessed the rising participation of women.

Women participation in development works carried out by the local levels under the Prime Minister Employment Programme is visible in small irrigation projects, road construction, drinking water projects, building construction and others.

The women have made economic gains as well as good command of skills in the related fields after their increased involvement.

Shivamaya Siwa, a woman from Sidingwa Rural Municipality-3 in the district, shared that her schedules have changed in the recent days after the project implementation under the Prime Minister Employment Programme. "We have been working for the construction of roads and irrigation canal. We have performed better than the men," she shared.

In Taplejung, as high as 300 women have been directly working in the development areas through the Prime Minister Employment Programme.

Lila Gautam of Sirijunga Rural Municipality-3 received cash for the first time from her own bank account last Sunday after working in this programme.

"I did not have my bank account. After the beginning of the Prime Minister Employment Programme, I opened my bank account there and withdrew Rs 17,000 in cash as the first month's salary," 26-year-old Gautam said.
