We are WAFD
Women’s Action for Development ( WAFD)

Women’s Action for Development ( WAFD) was formed in 1978 as a voluntary effort of a few socially minded young people who wanted to make a difference. . The focus of work has always remained women, and as needs changed WAFD too took up new issues which were affecting women in the rural areas. For the past more than ten years WAFD has focussed on how climate change is affecting women and their workload and their lives. In order to really help the women with simple technologies, which would/ reduce the drudgery of their live. In order to do this WAFD started working with INSEDA as their technical partner who designed simple low cost, low carbon. environmentally friendly technologies which could be easily used by the women.
