WHR has empowered the lives of many single women across Nepal and strengthened their position in society by educating them and their children. We have helped them gain social and economic independence and provided them with healthcare facilities to support their everyday lives. We appeal to you for a compassionate donation that can help us reach, rehabilitate and reintegrate more single women throughout Nepal.
Your gift will contribute to various sectors, including:
- Skill-based training
- Relief Package for Single Women
89% of widows in Nepal are illiterate, making access to education for single women and their children our primary focus. This focus aims to eventually help elevate their social and economic status.
WHR has also initiated initiatives to empower single women in Nepal by encouraging them to participate in income-generating activities through various training schemes. Subsequently, many women have gained confidence, which has also helped them network with each other.
It is reported that single women in Nepal suffer from high blood pressure due to long working hours, strenuous chores, exploitation, and violence. Consequently, it is imperative that WHR provides free health care services to them that they otherwise cannot afford.
As mentioned above, the majority of single women in Nepal are illiterate, belong to low economic status, and face severe discrimination on a daily basis. Various empowerment projects need to be carried out, as they will be critical in helping single women become more socially and economically independent and enabled.
Relief Package for Single Women
Nepal is notorious for natural disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, and flooding, and the vulnerability of single women increases during these times. WHR helps women during these disasters, which are often exacerbated by human activities such as human trafficking.
