About WWR

Women Without Roofs (WWR) is a small yet growing Christian Charity based in England that benefits women and their families living in Kathmandu, Nepal. We have a compassionate team of staff that helps women who are on their own and are struggling to survive. There are no social services in Nepal so each woman we support receives money from WWR for rent and medical bills, or she is invited to live at our Grace Women’s Home. Those with children receive extra per child to invest in education and help break the cycle of poverty.

Each woman we support receives from WWR money for her rent and medical bills.  This gives her security and she knows we are with her for the long term, our staff meet with them regularly.  Those with children receive extra per child.

Often this is enough to get the women back on their feet, however for some of our women there are other issues that they face.  Recently we have helped women provide good nutrition for their children, given them equipment to make items to sell and provided them with all kinds of household furniture and utensils.  It is our aim to break the cycle of poverty in the families we help and so we provide uniforms and pay education costs where needed.

In addition to our direct relationships with the women we also run a Sewing and Literacy course to give many women a skill and help them to provide for their families.  On completion of the course we have a shop in Kathmandu where the women work and sell items they have made.  Other ladies are involved in running a tea shop and a teddy bear shop.

Please take time to read our other web pages about the Grace Women’s Home and the Cyrene course; they will tell you more.

Thank you for reading about Women Without Roofs.  We are always looking for extra supporters and if you can help in any way please contact us:  support@wwr-nepal.org

  2. Hi, it’s in Bansbari, in the north of Kathmandu, it’s rather hard to find as there are no road names but I can give you the number of someone to call if you would like to find it and they will take you there. I’ve loved reading your blog about ‘M’. Beautiful writings.
