Challenge

The local fundraising in developing countries like Nepal is very challenging. People believe donating for spiritual purpose rather than donating is some women organizations. Hence to meet the target of our grant making amount of the year we do local fund raising, which is always challenging for us as we are only limited to capitalize the niche market i.e. within the valley. We have introduced the concept of "Matching Fund" from 2014/15 which has encouraged us to give a sizable amount for grant.

Solution

From our mission we are today able to give the new life to many Nepali women. We are able to make many Nepali women develop economically, fight for their rights, violence against women. Our many grantee partners now have control over their access. They are in leadership position. Women have started looking from feminist lens. Our works have helped the deprived women to be self-employed, fight for their rights, put their voiced and visibility more stronger and forward women's movement.

Long-Term Impact

We will continue our work and always push women to move ahead through disbursing grants, capacity enhance (networking and peer learning) programmes by spreading the message and importance of community philanthropy especially for women group. Hence donations received will fund for our regular grant making for multiple issues.
