Nari Chetna Kendra Nepal, also known as Women’s Awareness Centre Nepal (WACN), was established in 1991 by a group of women interested in improving the socio-economic status and self-development capacity of disadvantaged people, particularly women and children.
We envision a society where women also take a leading role in their communities and there is no gender discrimination. All the decision-making responsibilities will be shared equally by women and men at all levels. WACN believe that women are economically empowered only when they are able to access the facilities provided by the government and other agencies. WACN advocates the elimination of all forms of discrimination and violence in order to ensure the rights of women.
