Welcome!

WATCH is a secular, non-profit, politically non-aligned NGO, which was founded in March 8, 1992. It focuses on helping the poor, oppressed, and marginalised communities of Nepal, especially rural women. WATCH is committed to and experienced in supporting self-reliant and sustainable development through organizing women and other oppressed groups at the grassroots level and supporting them as they carry out action research to improve their lives.

Our Objective
  • Help disadvantaged groups and socially oppressed men and women to identify and solve their problems by facilitating, raising awareness, organizing them, and building up their confidence within the communities, thus empowering them to gain more control over their lives.
  • Educate the public about the situation of women and the strife faced by disadvantaged peoples.
  • Provide information to and obtaining resources for other organizations with similar interests, both nationally and internationally.
 

Vision

“to try an approach to development through which rural people, especially women and disadvantaged groups, become partners in development rather than the subjects and/or objects of development. In this way, they can develop their self confidence, self esteem and capabilities by making their own decisions and implementing them as required.”

Core Value

We have an unshakable belief that even the poorest women and men can make socially beneficial decisions as long as they are provided with opportunities and an environment to make such decisions. However, the creation of opportunities and how they are created may destroy their confidence or build and strengthen it.

 

Mission

“to try an approach to development through which rural people, especially women and disadvantaged groups, become partners in development rather than the subjects and/or objects of development. In this way, they can develop their self confidence, self esteem and capabilities by making their own decisions and implementing them as required.”
