The Women Rural Enterprise Acceleration Project (WREAP) in Palpa, Nepal aims to accelerate rural women’s enterprises and foster innovative communities by offering grants to women in the local community of around 260,000 people, many of which have had to migrate to find employment.
Women like Purnamaya Maharjan who lives in Papal, manfactures Dhaka textile and is known as the first Dhaka entrepreneur of Nepal. Purnamaya is 79 years old and has been growing her business since the 1950’s, training and employing women to create products for sale.
When we support projects like WREAP we send a worldwide message of empowerment to women to dream big and take risks to advance their families and society as a whole. To offer your support visit WREAP’s fundraising page.
