    Success Stories

    Our Programs

    Nari Chetna Kendra Nepal, also known as Women’s Awareness Centre Nepal (WACN), was established in 1991 by a group of women interested in improving the socio-economic status and self-development capacity of disadvantaged people, particularly women and children.

    Advocacy Networking

    WACN is involved in advocacy activities at local, national and international levels. Women from project areas perform advocacy work on their own protesting violence against women.

    Alternative Economies through Women’s Savings and Credit Cooperatives

    WACN encourages these informal groups of women to register as cooperatives, thereby allowing them to operate as a legal entity.

    Child Specific Programs

    WACN works with children laboring in Brick Factories around the Kathmandu Valley. The children migrate with their parents 6 months out of a year to work in Brick Factories.

    Community Based Development Programs (CBDP)

    A variety of development activities are carried out through WACN’s integrated Community-Based Development Program (CBDP)

    Community Center Collaboration

    WACN collaborates with the women’s cooperatives and other local organizations on a variety of projects. Building community center is an excellent example of their joint efforts.

    Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

    To commercialize agriculture, trainings are provided on a regular basis. Not only does the program encourage women to take a more active role in agriculture, it also attracts men interested in improving their farming techniques, providing a space for women and men to work together.


    The establishment of training and resource center has made WACN a leader in the field of community development and savings and credit schemes.

    To our friends & supporters

    We envision a society where women also take a leading role in their communities and there is no gender discrimination. All the decision-making responsibilities will be shared equally by women and men at all levels. WACN believe that women are economically empowered only when they are able to access the facilities provided by the government and other agencies. WACN advocates the elimination of all forms of discrimination and violence in order to ensure the rights of women.
