about us – 1

Nepal is a country of great geographic, cultural, ethnic and religious diversity. However, it is also a highly patriarchal society, where women are discriminated against in almost all aspects of life (see also women & children issues).

The Women’s Foundation Nepal is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation helping women and children in Nepal who are victims of violence, abuse and poverty. WFN was established in 1988 by a group of professional Nepalese women.


We want women to be strong, independent and to decide for their future themselves. We want women to play an integral role in shaping the future of Nepal, hand in hand with the men.
