We believe every woman and girl is born with great potential but not all women have the same opportunities. Sistaco is committed to giving women in Nepal experiencing poverty the tools and resources they need to build a better life for themselves, their families and communities.
How We’re Doing Our Part
The Sista's Project was formed to support the work of our key charity partners. Through our support, our partners provide women experiencing poverty, violence and hardship in Nepal access to the information, skills and resources they need to better their lives and the lives of their community.
The Resource Hubs provide essential services for women that include essential physical and mental health care along with professional financial and legal advice.
A variety of vocational programs are set up to empower women with focused training in leadership, gender equality and very importantly upskilling and education to allow women to be more financially independent.
We provide the funding of legal assistance to hundreds of women. The assistance is in the form of legal advice, representation, and access to a lawyer.
Through micro-crediting schemes, our partners allow women the opportunity to achieve financial independence by supplying small loans which allow them to start their own businesses.
Currently we provide support for up to 330 Nepali women in our first
Resource Hub with plans to expand very soon.
Just One Resource Hub Provides:
Free access to life-changing opportunities and resources. These include the following:
Facilitated support groups
Vocational skills development and training
Small business training
Micro-finance loans to establish small business
Sistaco took a long time to find a partner that has the same core values as ourselves. We are honoured to be partnered with The Global Women's Project (GWP); a grassroots 'not-for-profit' organisation, run entirely by impassioned women on a volunteer basis. It exists to advance the lives and livelihoods of women around the globe and make a difference.
