Women Without Roofs NepalCharity Number : 1132931
The relief of financial hardship among adults and their children living in Nepal by providing such persons grants of money to provide or pay for items, services or facilities they could otherwise not afford through lack of means.
To relieve sickness and promote and protect the good health of the people in Nepal.
Our principal activity is the provision of funds so that the women we support can pay their rent and therefore have the security of a place to live. In addition we also provide a child benefit allowance per child to their carers (Mother or Grandmother). We also provide support for medical bills for all our women and their families.
On an ad-hoc basis we provide school fees for students studying medical courses at University level. We see this as investing in the future of Nepal.
We provide a women’s home and help fund the ongoing operation and development of the market garden and animal husbandry by the women on the premises.
We have expanded our training and citizenship courses to enable the women we support, and some others who live in the locality of our home, to be more self-sufficient, to lead healthier lives and to be fully registered with the authorities as Nepali citizens.
In order to encourage self-reliance and empowerment we have supported two women in retail enterprises.
Women are referred to us by pastors, by the women we already help or by a Nepali charity Koshish which seeks to rehabilitate women with mental illness and provided they meet our criteria i.e. that they are on their own (no husband to support them) and do not have excessive private income, they are eligible for our support.
