The Himalayan Grassroots Women’s Natural Resource Management Association (HIMAWANTI) was established as a non-profit organization under the Government of Nepal's Registration Act on March 2nd, 1998.

We are a non-profit, non-political, non-governmental organization dedicated to strengthening women in sustainable natural resource management across different districts of Nepal.

We aim to promote solidarity among women at the grassroots level in order to increase their access to natural resources, as well as to ensure the equitable distribution and the benefits accruing from them. This is performed through our consultation and networking among the grassroots women. At HIMAWANTI, we offer women the opportunities to discuss resource management policies and practices, to share their respective situations, and to evolve appropriate strategies.
