Help Us Help the Women of Nepal

Some of our teachers planning their lessons
We know you haven’t heard from us in a while, but rest assured it’s not because we’ve been inactive. Quite the opposite!

Last year, WELNepal had to turn down over two-thirds of the women’s groups because it wasn’t possible to fund their courses. We also had to turn down women’s groups who wanted to learn how to grow organic vegetables and mushrooms and manufacture candles.

We’re going to need you to be especially conscious of our women’s groups this year because we will not be holding our annual benefit bash. We’re taking the next few months to hunker down and spend every penny on the people who need us most: the dedicated women and girls who always want more and better from their friends at WELNepal.

For all of you who have attended our parties and donated in the past, we still need your support.  Please help us by making a donation through Canada Helps. Canada Helps will electronically issue a tax receipt.  You can also send a check payable to WELNepal at:

178 A Palmerston Ave.
Toronto, ON
M6J 2J4. 

As always, we will be happy to send your tax receipt to you.

Also, please remember that the devastating earthquake has had a catastrophic effect on tourism — a sector people rely on to make ends meet. In order to survive, the Nepalese people need to find new ways to grow their economy. By giving the neediest people the tools to grow their coffers and give back to their communities; we’re helping rebuild a beautiful and troubled country that suffered a horrific setback.
We need you to help us help them by remembering to donate. Remember, as little as $25 teaches one woman to read.

If you still want to join us for a party, we invite you to come to Tribe MayaFire’s Spooky Souk fundraiser. The belly dance extravaganza is going to be held on Oct. 24 at the gorgeous Staircase Theatre in Hamilton, Ont. at 7 pm. If you can’t attend the Halloween-themed party, know that you can donate online any time or send us a check.

Thank you, as always, for your love, generosity and continued support.
