Seven Women has helped over 5,000 marginalised women since 2006



The Seven Women Story

Stephanie Woollard began Seven Women at age 22 after meeting seven disabled women working in a tin shed in Kathmandu.

These seven women were struggling to make a living in the face of harsh discrimination. With her last $200, Steph paid for a trainer to teach the women how to produce products for sale locally and abroad - and Seven Women was born. 

Since 2006, Steph has built up the Seven Women team and launched an Australian arm for fundraising and a sales channel for our ever growing operation in Nepal.

12 years after her meeting in a tin shed that started it all, over 5,000 women have been educated, trained and employed by Seven Women. 

Seven Women is empowering Nepali women, transforming their lives and their communities.

Steph is available to talk at functions or you could read more about Steph and Seven Women in her book From a Tin Shed to the United Nations.

In 2016, a documentary was made about Seven Women's work which has now been hosted over 80 times. Watch our trailer below.
