“The vision of the WAWCAS Program is to empower women who live in poverty in Nepal to become independent and able to achieve a better life and a better future for their children. This vision is also expressed in the name of the program – WAWCAS – which is an acronym for “Women at Work – Children at School”.
WAWCAS has created a training program that helps underprivileged women to learn how to establish, operate, and grow a business. Through this process, they become entrepreneurs with an income and they develop personally as individuals and socially in groups. Furthermore, as a requirement for participating in the program, their children must go to school.”
