About Us

CWON Australia is the Children’s Welfare Organization of Nepal – Australia.

What we do

CWON works in the Chitwan region of Nepal with people that have been displaced by 10 years of civil war as well as natural disasters such as floods and landslides. Currently, we are focusing on the Chepang hills, where hundreds of families live well below the poverty line and must survive on just a few dollars per day, foregoing basic hygiene and healthcare.

CWON Australia runs hygiene training and health camps as part of our volunteer program each year. We are also committed to providing basic infrastructures, such as wells and sanitary blocks, to villages in Chitwan.

We work in partnership with CWON (Nepal), CWON Oost-Vlaanderen (Belgium), Initiative Nepal (Germany) and our sister-organization- Student Volunteer Placements International (SVPI) (Australia).

Our inaugural AGM was on the 25th of June 2011 and our registration as an Incorporated Organization was approved on 3rd May 2011.
