The empowerment of women is vital for increasing the prosperity and standard of living in local communities, regions and Nepal as a whole. The Women’s Empowerment Program builds upon the initiatives and work of the Nepalese government and NGOs at a local level, addressing the problems and meeting the needs of communities.
