A link to a news article that highlights the story of Saraswati Pairyar, a woman from marginalized community of Sundarbazaar municipality in Lamjung. Saraswati is vying to compete for the position of ward chairperson of ward 12 if/when local elections are held.
She started as a member of Chautari CAC and now is the coordinator. Initially, she was not even able to speak her name out loud. However, being a member and now the coordinator of CAC has increased her confidence immensely to speak and advocate on behalf of the marginalized community. She believes that if/when she competes for the ward chairpersonship position, she will be supported by the members of her community because of her contribution in the society via CAC.
