Who we are

We are a team of change-makers who believe that every helping hand can raise a child and create a better future for them.

Community Family Welfare Association was established in 2053 BS ((1996) in Deodiha VDC ward no. 8 of Dhanush district as a Community Based Organization (CBO) with technical and managerial support of the Family Planning Association of Nepal under its long term sustainable plan for continued Family Planning services at the community level.
CFWA was later registered under the District Administrative Office (DAO) on the 13th day of 2053 BS in Dhanusha. The organization currently has its head office at Janakpur Municipality ward no. 4. Since its inception CFWA has been carrying out various populations and development works such as education, reproductive and environmental health, women empowerment, capacity building and skill-based training, as well as income generation activities in program VDCs.
So far the organization has served a population of 57 VDCs and 2 Municipalities out of 73 VDCs and 6 Municipalities in the Dhanusha district and 18 VDCs and 1 Municipality out of 75 VDCs and 1 Municipality in Mahottari District. The organization aims at expanding its program in the rest of the VDCs as well as in other districts of Nepal in the future.
