The Women's Foundation of Nepal
The mission of the Women's Foundation of Nepal
( WFN) is to help women and children equally,
regardless of caste, religion or race.
WFN is a non-profit and non-governmental organization which was established in 1988 by a group of professional Nepalese women who understood dignity, shared a deep sense of social responsibility, and had a strong desire to address the problems of women in Nepal. These principles which inspired the formation of WFN still guide its work today.
WFN strives to alleviate problems through increasing public awareness of opportunities for economic and social development, by fostering social responsibility and self-reliance in developing villages and cities, and through direct social work.
WFN empowers women to improve their lives, strengthen their families and their communities through practical programs. WFN works with local Nepali women to promote gender equality in Nepal.
