Soiya Women’s Independent Organization works for sustainable livelihoods in the social and enviromental sense. We teach women from marginalised communities about organic farming, we run organic school gardens and provide healthy school lunch for approximately 500 children per day. Most of the food comes from our own fields and all is grown according to organic principles and techniques.
Partnership and organisation:
We work in close partnership with the danish organisation School Life in Nepal (in Danish language: Skoleliv i Nepal).
Our organization is run by the women who it supports. 90% of our members are from dalit kasts, the rest are tharu. Read more about our work on the sub pages of this website.
