NDWA's main goal is "to improve socio-economic and political status of women with disabilities" focusing on education, health, rehabilitation and livelihoods.
The Nepal Disabled Women’s Association (NDWA) is a non-government organisation established in 1998, covering 33 districts with its programmes.

Women with disabilities are still discriminated and isolated in Nepal due to the lack of awareness, education, access to health, poor economic conditions, poor communication, mobility barriers, lack of employment opportunities and no appropriate policies. NDWA focusses on a rights-based approach, capacity building, sustainability, partnership, collaboration and coordination, advocacy and networking, accessibility, economic empowerment, disability inclusive development, disaster risk reduction and research and study.

NDWA's main goal is "to improve socio-economic and political status of women with disabilities" focusing on education, health, rehabilitation and livelihoods. 

Womankind works in partnership with NDWA to strengthen the women’s movement and its awareness and understanding of disability, including voice and visibility of women with disabilities.
