Shree Prarthana Mahila Samaj (SPMS) is a community based organization which was established in 2002 to educate illiterate women in Bhaktapur, Nepal.


We are not affiliated with any religious or political organizations.  Our goal is to educate Nepalese women.

Why Nepalese Women?


  • Only 57% of women in Nepal are literate

  • 81% of the people live on less than $2 per day

  • Life expectancy for women is less than 60 years old
