Women’s Rehabilitation Centre

Women’s Rehabilitation Centre (WOREC)¬†Nepal works in partnership with grassroots people to campaign for the promotion of human rights and sustainable community development based on social justice. Among its programmes, WOREC runs a campaign on violence against women, which includes women human rights defenders’ concerns.¬† WOREC has initiated a National Alliance of Women Human Rights Defenders in 72 districts in Nepal with the aim of developing the capacity of women human rights defenders at the community level, creating a support system for those at risk, and systematically documenting cases of violence against women human rights defenders in order to advocate with the government for effective legal mechanisms for their security and protection.
