Obtaining Nepali citizenship papers is not easy and for many of our women can be near impossible, especially when they wish to obtain papers for their children. This in-depth article from the BBC explains more about it.
The good news though is that WWR has been able to help vulnerable women in Nepal obtain their citizenship papers, both for them and their children. This is Parwati, proudly showing off her papers in May 2012.
WWR has been recognised for its work in Nepal by the Portsmouth News newspaper. Anna, one of the trustees, won a t-shirt and appeared in the newspaper with a great article all about our work. Thank you Portsmouth!
Sellers on Ebay can now choose to support Women Without Roofs through their sales. Ebay gives the option for 10 to 100% of an item’s final sale price to be donated to charity and now WWR is among those charities that can benefit.
This is great news as all money raised by WWR goes to Nepal where even the smallest amounts go a long way; for instance just £10 can pay a woman’s rent for a month giving her a home.
