It was decided in the meeting to establish a joint vision and working groups to bring positive change in the local community. Women at the meeting showed great energy and desire to work together. 5 goals were established during the meeting:

1- To stop alcohol abuse, which can lead to domestic violence and fights amongst men.
2- To stop sexual violence and improve women’s safety, particularly at night.
3- To stop forced marriage and early marriage
4- To stop polygamy. Although it is acceptable for men to take a second wife in Nepali society, this leads to a number of financial and welfare issues for the women, who have little legal recourse, and responsibility for the children.
5- To improve health by ensuring the cleanliness of living areas.
