MUKTI focuses on institutional strengthening and capacity building of freed Haliyas in collaboration with a local NGO, Rastriya Mukta Haliya Samaj Federation (RMHSF). The project undertakes policy advocacy to address the issues of the Haliya community and establish their rights and protection.
In 2013, the project familiarized senior government officials with the present situation of freed Haliyas. The project also coordinated with journalists, civil society members, human rights activists and others to create pressure on the Government of Nepal to finalize the rehabilitation modality and three year action plan regarding the Haliyas. This included completing the verification and ID card distribution process and immediately providing rehabilitation packages to them. District level government line agencies, political parties and other stakeholders were also pressurized to allocate budget for the Haliyas at local level and make necessary arrangements to create job opportunities for them.
