Celebrating Silver Jubilee Year
RWDC now has traversed a journey of 26 years as of this day and is now a well-established national NGO in mid western Nepal. The organization also has had a great impact on the beneficiary groups’ literacy awareness, empowerment leadership capabilities, good governance and income generation activities after economic empowerment program was initiated through microfinance since 2003.
So, there has been a major shift of paradigm now in the outlook of rural women groups involved with RWDC microfinance programs as they are capable of taking petty loans from microfinance program to start small scale business entrepreneurship which is another form of self employment and income generation to make women self-dependent both socially and economically.
This program has helped in alleviating poverty of rural women to greater extent. RWDC has also become popular NGO in the last 26 years as an outcome of its consistent work and commitment to oversee the welfare of the rural women in this region.
RWDC has contributed substantially to maternal health of rural women who used to suffer from the problem of prolapsed uterus during the last decade. Over 24000 rural women were facilitated with recovery of prolapsed uterus through program activities launched by this organization which was supported by Americans for UNFPA -United Nations Population fund in Dang districts.
As an outcome, RWDC’s chairperson Aasmani Chaudhary was awarded with “International Award for Health and Dignity” by Americans for UNFPA in America in New York in 2008.
Throughout the last 26 years of our humanitarian journey, the RWDC under the charismatic leadership of Aasmani Chaudharuy has had the great opportunity to work in cooperation with government as well as various bilateral, multilateral donor agencies, INGOs like World Education, Heifer International Nepal, United Nation Population Fund (UNFPA), DANIDA, ADB, International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), European Union Commission, Planet Enfante, Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Nepal, Resource Identification Management Society Nepal (RIMS-Nepal), Rupantaran, RMDC Laghubitta Bittiya Sanstha Ltd, Centre for Research and Environment, Health and Population Activities (CREHPA), PACT Nepal, Micro Credit Project for Women (MCPW), Community Self-Reliance Centre (CSRC), Enhancing Access to Financial Services (EAFAS), Heifer International, Nepal Nepal Rastra Bank, International Foundation for Electoral System (IFES), UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), United Nation Development Fund (UNDP), Habitat for Humanity Nepal, USAID, fhi360, Bank of Kathmandu, FMDB Laghubitta Bittiya Sanstha and with various local NGOs of Rolpa, Dang Salyan, Pyuthan, Bardiya and Banke districts.
