The plight of women on the India-Nepal border has been more apparent, everyday women are forced into slavery or abused by their husbands and many times left alone to raise their kids on their own. SEEMA was founded to provide opportunities to these women who would have otherwise been in forced labor or living on the streets. Our goal is to empower these women by providing economic, psychological and spiritual stability for women in this part of the world.
