Entire Power in Social Action (EPSA Nepal)
EPSA-Nepal (Entire Power in Social Action-Nepal) is a non-governmental organization. It was founded in April 2004 as the Disabled Centre Nepal. Its name was changed to EPSA-Nepal to reveal the importance in their activities of providing a meaningful life.
In their country, the standard living conditions can be extremely hard for physically challenged and disabled people, and especially for women. Due to traditional conservative culture and male dominated society, in addition to lack of education, knowledge, and technology, people with disabilities are often badly neglected by their own families and communities. Women with disabilities are discriminated thrice: firstly for their gender, secondly for being poor and thirdly for being disabled. This is why their project is targeted for the benefit of women with disabilities living in poverty.
