Women Without Roofs - Nepal

A charity supporting women and their children in Nepal that face hardship

Founded 2005

  • Mission statement

    Women Without Roofs (WWR) is a small, yet growing, charity based in England that benefits women and their families living in Nepal. We have a small team of staff in Nepal and they help women that are on their own and are struggling to survive. Many of these women also have children and we do as much as we can to help them. All of our women are vulnerable, sometimes a husband will abandon his wife because of the stigma of leprosy, or perhaps the husband is in jail or dead. Each of our women has a different story but the common thread is that they are on their own.
    Each woman we support receives from WWR money for her rent and medical bills. This gives her security and she knows we are with her for the long term, our staff meet with them regularly. Those with children receive a little extra per child.
    Often this is enough to get the women back on their feet, however for some of our women there are other issues that they face. Recently we have helped women provide good nutrition for their children, given them equipment to make items to sell and provided them with all kinds of household furniture and utensils. It is our aim to break the cycle of poverty in the families we help and so we provide uniforms and pay education costs where needed.
    In addition to our direct relationships with the women we also run a Sewing and Literacy course to give many women a skill and help them to provide for for their families.
