Pahichan (The Identity) is a non-governmental organization based in Kathmandu, Nepal. We are committed to empowering marginalized women with disabilities who might be unmarried, widows or divorced. It will be done through creating a living, learning and working environment. We will enhance women’s skills, boost-up their confidence and enable them to live independent lives with dignity.
It was established in 2019 by Ichhya K.C, a Nepali blind woman. In Nepal, women’s role is restricted to taking care of the husband’s house, giving birth to his babies and nurturing cultural practices. Strict patriarchal system, norms, religious practice and social boundaries hinder women from being active, contributing agents in society.
