Promoting quality education, employment and health care by empowering women, educating children and building learning centers in underserved communities.

The problem

In Nepal, women and children suffer from unemployment and labor abuse. At alarming numbers, women and girls are trafficked into the international sex trade, children are forced to work in illegal sweatshops and young girls are forced into child marriages.

Our Approach

LOCWOM aims to empower women and girls in underserved and disadvantaged communities, as well as those living in poverty and with trauma by providing them with a safe space, supportive community, sustainable skills training, education, resources and opportunities.
