Participants and Facilitators of CTP in Nepal. Faces blurred for privacy.

The Common Threads Nepal program was initially piloted with a group of Pakistani refugees living in Kathmandu. After the completion of Phases I and II of the Common Threads program with the pilot group, Jamuna Maharjan and Indira Pradha of TPO Nepal launched a new iteration of the Common Threads program in May 2016 with Afghani and Pakistani refugee women living in the country. Phase I of the program took place over the course of 14 weeks from May to August of 2016.

To assess the efficacy of the Common Threads program on the participants’ mental health, Rachel Cohen collaborated with the author to develop a qualitative evaluation of the 2016 Phase I Common Threads program. Each participant, the three co-facilitators, and the two primary facilitators, Jamuna Maharjan and Indira Pradhan, were interviewed from August 22 to August 26, 2016, the last week of their intervention program.
