There have been many changes since the establishment of PWEDO in 1994. The social and political environments, which govern institutions and influence the overall development in Nepal, have Many new social and political institutions have been established and this has given rise to new expectations and new perspectives. The immediate and most pressing needs of the poor,the deprived and the disadvantaged people have not been changed. The specific development context at the local level has not been changed. Social and economic empowerment was, and still is, the foremost need of these people to earn a dignified living in their respective communities. Second, the core institutional values and mission of PWEDO have not changed. PWEDO is for people’s wellbeing by promoting and protecting human rights, gender equality and the integrity of the environment. PWEDO views strong and diverse collaborative approach and partnerships as integral to meeting its goal. It allies with women’s organizations, environmental, development and human rights organizations; government and non-governmental organizations, including the united nations and other bilateral and multilateral organizations to achieve its mission.
In the past 25 years, PWEDO has worked withMore than 25,000 women and 10,000 men through its awareness and capacity building programsto help them fight poverty and hunger in a collective way. As an organization, we are happy about the positive results; but we are not complacent. We could do more – reach more people, provide wider range of services and generate larger and more sustainable impact on their lives. The desire to do more and better is deep within our institutional mission and we will strive hard to fulfill this desire by changing the scale and scope of our work in the future. But we can succeed only as far as we continue receiving support from our development partners, donors and well wishers, without whom we would nothave achieved the current scale of operation.
I take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to all those who have supported in our mission in the past and look forward to their continued support in the future.
