History and Philosophy
PeaceWin is a woman led, non-government, not for profit making, social development organization. It works with children, women, youths and marginalized groups for promotion and practices of their social, economic, cultural rights. It addresses on program integration and mainstreaming of social issues, like: gender & caste discriminations, child marriage, anti-tobacco, sexual and reproductive health rights, good governance/ social accountability.
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. PeaceWin was initiated by rural farmers of Bajura, Atichaur collecting Rs. 100.00 from each household e.i. 53 families. The basic working themes of the establishment were agriculture products (vegetable), sanitation, forest conservation, and school enrollment of girl child, saving-credit, and reduce unnecessary expenses in social functions.
To whom and with whom PeaceWin is working?
PeaceWin’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 believes in Social Justice, peace and harmony in terms of equitable access to socio-cultural, political, and economic and all human rights of 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 work with children, women, youth and marginalized communities.
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.
