About us – Intro

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’s and children’s 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.
