Simari Women Shelter

We often witness the heartbreaking situation of single mothers with their children in Nepal. Women are left behind without any financial resources when the husband deserts the family or dies. There is no perspective in life any more for these women and their children. Because of this Little Stars has financed the construction of a women shelter which offers shelter to single mothers and their children. Here they are given the chance to start a new life and they can learn to provide for themselves.Mothers are given the chance to cultivate a piece of land and to earn their living for example by doing tailoring work, while their children can go to nearby schools.

A group of women in the village of Simari wants to take over responsibility for looking after these destitute little families. A new association called Children and Women Welfare Centre (CWWC) was founded for this purpose, who supported Little Stars during the construction phase and who will ensure the future operation of this facility.

After the construction of the building was completed it was handed over to the Children and Women Welfare Centre (CWWC) in May 2019.
