Jhauwa Guthi VDC Profile
The University of Oxford, in collaboration with the Centre for the Study of Labour and Mobility (CESLAM) and local partner Divya Youth Club, Parsa, conducted a census entitled ‘Labour Migration: Impacts on Households in Parsa’ in February-March 2014. This census (hereafter, Parsa Study 2014) covered three VDCs of Parsa district—Bagwana, Biranchi Barwa and Jhauwa Guthi—with the principal objective of providing data on the history and current trends in the migratory process from selected VDCs in Parsa district. The Parsa Study 2014 thus aims to provide a general overview of migration with information ranging from reasons for migration, occupations in the country of destination, and channels of remittance transfer, to the different socio-economic impacts of migration. This report discusses the findings of the study as they pertain to the VDC of Jhauwa Guthi and where applicable refers to the data from National Population and Housing Census 2011 to present a more time-sensitive depiction of the VDC.
