What a few of our young women leaders have to say…

Even though this is 21st century, people discriminate in the name of religion. Most of the neighbor discriminate me as a girl. In our society people gives importance to only boys.
This is the modern era but people have the mind of 19th century.
So, I want to participate in this training session to prove the people that even ladies can conquer the world.

The status of women in Nepal cannot be said to be good. More than 60% of women are illiterate and are not provided with great opportunities. The status of women is different according to regions, castes, economy, religion, and structure of the community. The women of higher castes have been more suppressed though they have got more facilities and opportunities of education and employment. The women of lower castes have got more freedom than the former ones but they have got less chance of education and employment. Most of Nepalese women do not have right to the property. They are not often involved in making policies and decisions of the family as well as the nation.

This is the 21st century.and still the situation of women are same, like humiliating and all those discrimination which is the major problem in our society and now a days we are raising a voice against it. Gender discrimination is decreasing now a days in city areas because every single person is educated well. Gender discrimination is major problem in rural area because many people are illiterate. Women empowerment is increasing day by day cause everyone knows to get an equal right and opportunity.

Frequently Asked Questions – FAQs

More questions? We’d love to hear from you! Email us directly.

Do delegates (general participants) need to speak english?


NO you do not NEED to speak english, yet some voices will be English so having a moderate level of english would be for the benefit of all involved.
With all that said, only a small percentage of the brain processes verbal communication (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nonverbal_communication), so to all who feel called to collaborate here: welcome!

From where do you receive your funding?

Most of our funds come through registrations and individual contributions.

That said, our #1 resource is our creativity — as we work to keep costs down, keep doors open to a diverse audience, give as many well deserved scholarships possible, and co-create a world class high impact experience.
Thanks to a volunteer-driven team and the support of many pro-bono partnerships, the majority our production needs are covered in-kind.

All featured voices contribute their time as volunteers as well. They are normally are in a position to pay their own way and contribute financially when possible. 

Our collaboration in producing the event is really part of the program.
Empowerment WORKS annual revenues are made available to the public via it’s profile at Guidestar.org

What is you policy on sponsorship?


While we accept and recognize no-strings-attached-to-program donations from values-aligned Supporting Partners, Empowerment WORKS does not sell sponsorships.
Our mission is to ensure all voices are heard, so while we do need and appreciate funding, we are committed to ensuring that our platform remains neutral, and that the content and voices represented are not unduly compromised.

Thanks to our Partners in Empowerment supporting local impact throughout the year!
