Nepal is the poorest and most unequal country in Asia. 8 million people live below poverty line but women and girls in Nepal are often denied their basic human rights and have limited access to basic healthcare and education. Many of Nepal’s challenges were compounded by the two major earthquakes that occurred in April and May 2015.

Meet the local organisations we work with

We are working in partnership with talented local organisations to provide better opportunities for women and girls from marginalised groups in the rural areas of Western Nepal, a remote region under-served by other NGOs. Together we are doing all we can to ensure women and girls have a better quality of life and become leaders in their communities. We are also responding in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes through some of these local organisations as well as trusted international emergency response partners.
