Rural Women Development Centre (Gramin Mahila Utthan Kendra) was founded in 1993 by a group of women social workers led by Aasmani Chaudhary in Dang district in Ghorahi municipality at Tharu village.
The primary focus of the organization was to promote educational rights, empowerment, maternal health rights, income generation and combating gender discrimination for backward and marginalized girls and women and create a just society.
RWDC office was set up in an unfurnished room of mud hut house located in Tharu gaun of Ghorahi town. There were no resources to use at the outset. So, the organization was started from zero level with just few floor mates to sit on.
