Forum for Women, Law and Development (FWLD) is an autonomous, non-profit, non-governmental organization established on May 29, 1995 to work for the protection, promotion and enjoyment human rights. In order to eliminate all forms of discrimination, the Forum uses law as an instrument and ensures the rights of women, children, minority and all other marginalized people of society.
The organization was initiated with the combined effort of seven founder members for the revelation and eradication of the discriminatory laws and to domestically and effectively implement the Convention on Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). Encouraged by the success achieved the organization is now working on a number of issues which include the rights of Women, Disabled, Elderly, Children, Marginalized Groups, Religious Minorities, Indigenous Minorities, Dalits, Sexual and Gender Minorities
FWLD has been involved in filing noteworthy Public Interest Litigations which is a master tool used for the reformation and effective enforcement of laws; and have been involved in conducting researches on issues related to Child Marriages, HIV & AIDS, Women's Sexuality, Reproductive and Sexual Health and Rights, Trafficking and Sexual Harassment.
We have expansively studied and updated the Discriminatory Laws of Nepal and have been incessantly struggling to eradicate atrocities, stigma and discrimination that have been emanated as a result of these prevailing discriminatory laws. We provide Legal Aid and Services to clients who have been the victims of discrimination namely: trafficked victims, HIV & AIDS victims and the sexual minorities.
FWLD has been building up the capacity of the District Resource Groups of 23 districts of Nepal especially on issues of Violence against Women and Children. The members further train their Village Development Committee (VDC) members and broaden awareness all over Nepal.
Relentless contribution of providing voter's education to the public, who are oblivious to the system of voting in the Constituent Assembly (CA) Elections, is being done by FWLD in conjunction with various other civil society groups and NGOs.
We relentlessly work towards creating a just and equitable society.
