What We Do
We believe that all women have the right to holistic wellness and the freedom to provide for themselves and their families without threat to their physical, mental, and emotional well being. That is why we started HER (Himalayan Entrepreneur Resources).
Himilayan Entrepreneur Resources (HER)
HER is an empowerment initiative in Nepal that exists to give marginalized women health, safety, and autonomy so they can avoid vulnerable situations. We accomplish this by:
- Addressing Medical Crises
Women in marginalized communities receive health education and feminine hygiene products.
- Addressing Gender-Based Violence
Women become trauma-informed and learn about their legal rights.
- Equipping Female Entrepreneurs
Women receive grants, accountability, ongoing education, and legal protection so they can start microenterprises.

Why We Empower Women
The Women We Serve Are Often In Danger of Being Trafficked
Over 80% of the women we encounter are suffering from vaginal infections
Because there is little education around their bodies, many of the women born into lower castes live in constant discomfort, suffering from disease and infections—almost all of which are preventable and curable. These women are also prevented from attending school, going to work, or staying in their own homes during their period. Much of this can be solved through health education and providing them with feminine hygiene products.
