JN is a pioneer organization working for women inclusion in politics and contributing for democratic governance and is able to reach more than 25 districts of Nepal including the most challenged Karnali zone in partnership with local organizations. It’s been working towards increasing awareness on human rights, women rights, democratic governance and sustainable peace. It’s also been contributing to enhance leadership of potential women leaders from different political parties, community and social institutions at different level.
As a part of continuous advocacy and lobby, awareness raising program, pressurizing concerned authorities , JN formed a collective campaign (SAJHA ABHIYAN) which is currently being followed and supported by various organizations for Women's Participation in the election in which hundreds of organizations are members of the network.
