Women of the Third World : What we can learn from them?


Date of Publication: May, 2019
Binding: Paperback

Claude Bobillier is not all doom and gloom. He gives us inspiring examples of women's liberation drawn from Nepal, Bangladesh, Morocco, Tunisia, Sahel, Rwanda, West Africa etc. He offers practical steps towards liberation and emancipation of women in the Third World. Bobillier's vast exposure as a Development Consultant covers many continents and what he writes is based on firsthand experience drawn from his works over the decades and across the world.

This book is not an advocacy statement to raise funds for a big national or international NGO! It certainly is a representation of the real voice of the real women living their real daily plights in remote parts of Asia and Africa, in their rural milieu about creating an environment of empathy, understanding and equitable partnership between genders for the betterment of the respective societies as whole. Enlightening!
- Dr. Madhu Prasad Ghimire,

Claude Bobillier resolves to bring the dialogue centred on real-life happenings, and he succeeds in mapping the socio-economic challenges the women in developing countries are still confronting with weak regulatory and policy provisions. The book interfaces deeply with the facts, figures, analysis and opinion - and comes out as a refreshing read. In all probability, this shall be used widely for reference and in serious context!

This is a book of compassion and revolt written by a man whose life work was to help people in what then was known as the "Third World" countries. Unlike some westerners who adapted and came to accept inequalities as amatter of fact, Claude Bobillier never let go of his anger, nor could he be complaisant about the suffering especially of the women he encountered. Written by a good story teller, this is a book that comes from the heart.

DHL Receiver’s Guide to Duties and Taxes, Goods Purchased Online for Personal Use
You may be charged customs duties and taxes for something purchased online because:

Duties and taxes are most typically not included in the price of the goods you purchase online, and might not be included in the overall shipping costs you pay to the online retailer.
When purchasing goods online, some or all of these goods may not originate in the country you reside in, therefore are subject to a customs duty, which is a tariff or tax imposed on goods when transported across international borders.
When goods are not shipped domestically (within your country) or within a single customs union, such as the European Union, you are liable to pay any inbound duties and taxes which your local customs authority deems appropriate.
To ensure the DHL courier can deliver your goods in shortest possible time after entering your country or customs union, DHL pays the customs authority on your behalf for any duties and taxes that are due on the goods.
Once the duties and taxes are fully repaid to DHL the goods will be delivered to you What is payable, if anything, depends on where the goods are sent from, the type of goods, their transactional value and the weight of the package
