Situation analysis of working Area
Biswas Nepal is formed to help the young girls, children and women who work in the entertainment sector like: Dance Bar, Cabin Restaurant, Dohori, and Massage Parlor, where the possibility of physical harassment and sexual exploitation and employing underage (below 18 years) girls and boys are present. Labor has been parted from facilities of JD, fix working time, bonus, holidays, ID card, appointment letter, and basic salary. Directive of Supreme Court which was issued for this sector is not implemented well so this sector is non prestigious, unsystematic and illegal. Especially Children of this sector are highly in labour and sexual exploitation.
