Pillar 5

The Strategic Approach of WHR


WHR has been a pioneer in addressing single women’s issues and envisions changing traditional stereotypes and mindsets that keep single women from participating and accessing resources. We strive to change discriminatory policies to give women their rights and show that they are valuable social capital.


WHR’s strategic plan (2009-2013) focuses on five pillars.

Regional and International Networking (Pillar V)



Being single and problems associated with that are not confined within the borders of Nepal. It is in fact a global problem. Thus, this pillar works to build strong networks in the South Asian Regional and the Global (international) levels to make voices and rights of single women heard and acknowledged.
