I had a chance to work with Yangward and Sahadev for a Library Project in Bhojpur. Since then I have been following their works. It's amazing to see such a noble organization focussed towards uplifting the living standards of women of Nepal. All the very best team Yangward. You have my highest endorsements. Proud to be associated with your organization. :)

When I was doing my masters in London I was able to colaborate in the work of this foundation. Their representatives were very good at making visible the social issues they dealt with and their fundraising campaigns were fun and creative. Their members shared a common cause that went beyond their geographical sphere of influence, namely the fight against poverty and the empowerment of women in situation of vulnerability. The passion with which they dealt with these issues made it easy for people from all over the world to engage with them and identify the work of the foundation with their own realities. Overall I had a great time collaborating with their fundraising events and I became more sensitive and aware of important social issues due to their work, this took me to take actions to aid to these global causes in my own country.

I've known closely the work of Yang Ward Foundation for about two years now. I've had the opportunity to collaborate with them in fundraising events and develop a close relation with its members. In the time I've shared with them, I acknowledged their devotion for service and for helping, their commitment to leave this a better world than what they found, this makes them a very special group of people that work with passion for their causes.

The labour they have done in Nepal has empowered many women through production. Giving them tools not only to sustain themselves and their families but also to effectively exercise their rights on places on which the action of governments has been limited. Moreover I know the passion these people have for serving others and as such Yang Ward Foundation is a non-profit that truly deserves all the support they can get, as the work they perform is actually effective on the field, were people need it to be, and not only on board meetings.

Working with the Yang-Ward foundation in Nepal showed me first hand the value of the work that they do. The chariry reaches out to those most in need. A great team of Neaplaese citizens work alongside overseas volunteers to make a difference to the lives of women who are stigmatized.

I got to know about this organization through one of my friends. As someone who cares about women empowerment, I attended the fund raising dinner event by this organization. I was blown away by the passion of the President of this organization who is making impacts in the grassroots level. I will be supporting this organization in the days to come with my time and money.
