RUWDUC believes in promoting the well-being of humanity and ensuring equality amongst all for an equal and just society. Established in April, 1995 with the objective of lending voice to the voiceless, particularly women, children and youth from most disadvantaged groups, RUWDUC believes every human being has an inherent right to a healthy life, equal opportunities to avail education, employment, quality health care, and access to justice, and to live a violence-free and peaceful life, devoid from all forms of discriminations. These beliefs fundamentally govern RUWDUC interventions which target some of the remotest parts of Nepal where discriminatory socio-cultural norms and values have hampered development efforts, negatively impacting overall empowerment and positive change. . RUWDUC recognizes transformation becomes possible only when the needs of communities are implicitly understood, communities are closely engaged in transformative processes, and consistent technical backstopping effort is rendered from macro to micro levels to ensure a society where women, men and LGBTQUI are all equal.
The Rural Women’s Development and Unity Center (RUWDUC) was established in April 1995 by a group of women from the Far Western Development.
Empower women, children and youth to contribute to a holistic socio-economic and environment development in Nepal specifically in the Far Western Region of Nepal.
