03 History and Philosophy


PeaceWin Nepal is a dynamic and women-led social development organization dedicated to empowering marginalized communities. Established on September 26, 1990, as a grassroots Community-Based Organization (CBO) in Oligaun, Bajura District, Nepal, PeaceWin has championed transformative initiatives focused on eradicating harmful practices, promoting education, health, and equality, and fostering sustainable development. As a non-governmental, not-for-profit entity, PeaceWin is driven by its commitment to social justice, gender equality, and community well-being.

Originating with contributions from 53 rural households in Oligaun, Bajura, PeaceWin Nepal's early efforts centered on dispelling superstitions, improving girls' education, advocating family planning, encouraging vaccinations, enhancing livelihoods, conserving forests, and strengthening agriculture. Since its inception, PeaceWin has consistently engaged with marginalized groups—children, adolescents, women, and youth—alongside stakeholders, like-minded organizations, and networks to promote and safeguard their social, economic, and cultural rights. PeaceWin's strategic focus encompasses critical issues, including gender equality, anti-child marriage initiatives, sexual and reproductive health rights, good governance, and justice.

It was established locally in 2047 B.S (26 Sept. 1990 AD) at Atichaur Village Development Committee (VDC) -4, Oligaon as a Community Based Organization (CBO) and registered with District Administration Office (DAO) in B.S. 2049 Paush 5 (20 December 1992 AD). After the restoration of democracy in 1991, Nepalese society became politically free and aware their roles and responsibilities toward development. The organization utilized the rights of association obtained from a long tome struggle.

PeaceWin Nepal’s social exclusion principle and approach include the inadequate or unequal representation, participation and involvement in decision-making in social, political life or a place in society. It involves the presence of social and institutional barriers that restrict access to essential services and development opportunities for members of society.

PeaceWin Nepal believes in Social Justice, peace and harmony in terms of equitable access to socio-cultural, political, and economic and all human rights for all. It is an ideal condition in which all members of a society have rights of security, opportunities, obligations and claims on benefits with their responsive duty. PeaceWin Nepal work with children, women, youth and marginalized groups.

Impact Group:

A group that constitutes populations for whom PeaceWin intends to effect positive long-term sustainable changes. The population group upon which the programme and its partners aim to have a positive impact with a long-term commitment to overcome underlying causes of poverty, vulnerability and social injustice. The impact group is typically larger than the subset population directly impacted by an individual project or initiative at the field level carried out by PeaceWin.

Anchored in equitable values, this vision aims to instill self-esteem, equality, and self-reliance, fostering a collective journey towards a just and empowered society.
