A 7.8-magnitude earthquake has struck Nepal with death toll reaching 6,621 (as of May 3, 2015) and causing massive destruction. Tewa with its relatively small team has been mobilising volunteers and coordinating relief work.Tewa’s grantee partners are on the ground in 65 out of 75 districts in Nepal. Within these the 12 districts are hardest hit. They are using their local knowledge and skills to help their communities prioritising women, girls and children to build and strengthen their lives based on their ground realities.Your help can encourage, uplift, empower relief and ongoing rehabilitation work by enabling us to help ourselves and each other as fellow Nepalis.
Tewa is a non-profit organization committed to philanthropy for equitable justice and peace. Founded in 1996, just after the World Conference on Women in Beijing, Tewa was established as an alternative model for development within the Nepali context. While promoting both sustainable development and women’s empowerment, Tewa’s work explicitly aims to do away with established hierarchies of gender, class, caste, ethnicity, age and even geography. It demonstrates an inclusive, non-hierarchical structure that is transparent and accountable, as well as trusting and respectful. In addition, Tewa is committed to human resource development in all aspects of its work. learn more about Tewa
