History and Key Successes of the Organisation
A Brief History of the Organisation
Nepal Chelibeti Disabled Women Society (NCDWS) is a non-Governmental organisation, led by women with disabilities to fight against disability and its causes. It was established in the eastern region of Nepal in 1998 at the initiation of disabled activist’s women. At the start, NCDWS was limited to activity based programmes, in collaboration with VDC and DDC sanitation campaigns, sewing and cutting training to people with disabilities and children with disabled parents. But NCDWS could not address the issues of women with disabilities who are more vulnerable and marginalised in society. The organisation itself was just registered and had a wish to work with women and girls with disabilities. We were looking for encouragement and support from outside.
After our partnership with UMN, we have been gradually maturing organisationally and technically. We have been promoting disability friendly infrastructures and provide ID cards. We have established good links and coordination with concerned stakeholders.
