“I have had the pleasure of seeing the activities of Women Welfare Service (WWS) around Sarkegad, Karnali province. For instance, it was impressive to witness the impact of the cooperative with 800 members and the farmers’ groups, increasing the income of poor people many-fold. WWS is truly making a difference in the lives of the most marginalised and vulnerable women in this remote area of Nepal. Mission East is proud of our long-standing partnership with WWS.”

"I never imagined being a shop owner but the training from "SAAMARTHYA" project by Women Welfare Service had helped me to be one. The 4 days retail shop training gave me strength, motivation and courage to start a new career at this point and got 10,000 rupees monetary support to start a business. I am earning good money from my shop and using those money to my children's education. The project not only helped me to earn money but also helped me to read and write, and become a leader. I am leading people to fight against caste based disrcimination, climate crisis, child marriages, chhaupadi, domestic violence"
