Organization: Nepal Disabled Women Association (NDWA)

Nepal Disabled Women Association (NDWA) was established in 2054 (1998) adopting the values of the fundamental rights and responsibilities provided by the constitution of Nepal in order to support Women with Disabilities (WWDs) to pursue their rights, and provide them protection and livelihood support. Unless WWDs from all sections of the Nepalese community get understanding of their human rights, particularly as ensured by the UN Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and exercise them, their lives will not be bright and prosperous. Thus, NDWA promotes the program to build the capacity of the WWDs living in both urban and remote areas of the country in order to make them capable and empowered so that they will be able to take initiative to exercise their rights. It is vital to empower women from other disadvantaged communities such as women with disabilities from Dalit and Madhesi to build their self- esteem and confidence. In this context, NDWA has an important role to advocate on the issues of WWDs, such as rights to education, health, employment, rehabilitation and social security. NDWA seeks to create and lead a nationwide network of self-help groups of WWDs to achieve its mission. We are looking for anappropriate candidate for the following position:
