Record numbers of able-bodied youths are migrating to foreign countries in search of work thus creating a shortage of farm workers in Nepal. Farming methods practiced here are also outdated and labor intensive in nature where women shoulder a significant burden of the work. We undertook a campaign where we argued the case for mechanized agriculture that would greatly reduce farmer’s workload and also increase their productivity. We used practical demonstrations, drama, role-plays and films to deliver this message.
