About This Cause

Three years ago Devika Gurung founded the Nepali Yoga Women Project with Emma Despres, a woman from the UK. Devika grew up in Nepal and is fully aware of the harsh realities women face in the country.

The two women decided to start a project to develop the unsuspected, inner skills of Nepali women and allow them to reassert themselves in society. They wanted to create a positive environment where Nepali women could learn how to heal and support themselves.

The role of Nepali women is mostly confined to their domestic obligations. These include cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the family. This lifestyle prevents them from maintaining a part-time job, contributing to the household income, and ultimately from living independent of male support. Many women still do not have access to education in Nepal, another factor that limits their options.

At the Nepali Yoga Women Project six women learn holistic therapies, self-healing techniques and handicraft skills. These activities provide them with a step towards inner-transformation and self-confidence. Currently, the women come to the center 6 days a week from 10:00 AM to 4:00PM to accommodate their children’s school schedule. They receive a monthly salary from fundraising and the sales of their handicrafts. They also receive free training in English, massage therapy, and yoga.
