Our Mission

Established in 2010, the NWAWWD is a nonprofit, regional level organization working for the most marginalized and vulnerable grassroots women with disabilities. The aim is to strengthen their capacities to live dignified lives in society following the rights based approach. The NWAWWD has been assisting grassroots women’s groups by providing essential materials for their basic living standards, providing peer counseling, and supporting rehabilitation of some target groups through advocacy and lobbying for integration into mainstream societies. We are intensifying efforts on the interconnected issues of gender, disability, and indignity because we see it as the most urgent issue. We aim to penetrate with duty bearers  to make the society step up in accepting all women with disabilities.
