A global champion for women and girls, UN Women is the United Nations entity responsible for promoting women’s empowerment and gender equality and was established to accelerate progress to meet the needs of women and girls worldwide.
UN Women Australia is a registered charity in Australia which exists to raise funds for and awareness of UN Women’s work across the Pacific and around the world. UN Women Australia is recognised by UN Women as its partner in Australia to advance UN Women’s agenda.

UN Women’s priority areas of work include:

  • Expanding women’s leadership and participation
  • Ending violence against women and girls
  • Ending poverty through enhancing women’s economic empowerment
  • Responding to crises, building peace and resilience, with women’s needs and talents at the centre of disaster planning and response
UN Women’s approach is through partnership: working in close consultation with community leaders and governments, UN Women collects and disseminates evidence to shape effective and transformational policies and programs. At the heart of this work is ensuring that everybody everywhere, no matter your gender, has the same opportunity to lead, to learn, to earn a decent living and to live a life free from violence and discrimination.

Adara believes each and every person should have access to quality health, education and other essential services, no matter where they live. We reach more than 50,000 people living in poverty each year and countless more through knowledge sharing.

Adara’s Remote Community Development work contributes to improve the quality of life of women, children and the disadvantaged in isolated communities – a key component of that work is ensuring remote Nepali communities have access to quality education. A quality local school increases the chance of all children getting an education – and decreases the risk of child trafficking.

Trafficking is a problem throughout Nepal and children in remote villages are often more vulnerable, due to extreme poverty and lack of educational opportunities. In all Adara’s target schools we work in partnership with the community to provide quality education, raise awareness of child trafficking and implement strong child protection practices.
