Women’s empowerment is Apeiron’s ultimate goal.
Through literacy, micro-enterprise, and vocational and life skills training, Apeiron fights against prejudice, violence, and inequalities so that women develop the skills necessary to support themselves and their families. We help women confront uphill battles: gender-based violence, restricted access to and control over resources, low literacy, struggles to obtain citizenship documents, and other social and economic challenges.
We enable each woman to realize her potential by overcoming the constraining barriers in her life.
In Nepal, a gender equal society does not yet exist, and the implications are far reaching. Gender inequality is at the root of social, economic, and legal inequalities. Such disparities restrict opportunities for people of all genders, hindering their access to basic rights and consequently, to live life to its full realm of possibilities.
Apeiron fights against prejudice, violence, and inequalities so that women develop the skills necessary to support themselves and their families.
Through 4 main areas of intervention identified by our Theory of Change: Gender Based Violence Prevention and Response, Awareness and Education, Income Generation, and Institutional Collaboration, we enable women to overcome constraining barriers in their life and realize their potential.
In response to the catastrophic earthquakes that struck Nepal in 2015, we have also been engaging in gender-sensitive humanitarian actions.
Because of our approach and our values, we have witnessed gender-based violence (GBV) survivors gain confidence from our training and use their newfound skills to negotiate improved roles in their households.
This visible progress inspires us to continue working for the equal and meaningful participation of women in Nepali households, communities, and society.
