‘Sankalpa’ – Women’s Alliance for Peace, Justice, and Democracy, is an alliance of diverse women’s organization. Sankalpa literally means a resolve, a promise, a commitment, and determination. As such it strives to give voice, genuine space, dignity and respect to Nepali women in the new constitution in the making of Nepal. Sankalpa is dedicated to ensure women’s equal opportunity in the state making process irrespective of caste, ethnicity, religion, language, occupation, or degree of physical ability. Its objective is that diverse groups of women are visibly engaged at all levels of the Constituent Assembly and peace building processes. It has defined itself as “Mission 50/50”, meaning proportionate and representative participation of women at all levels of the peace process and all state structures.

Sankalpa was initiated after the peace process began in April 2006, and was legally established on 24 June, 2011 after being registered at the local district administration office. Sankalpa, as an inclusive alliance joins hands also with all other alliances and movements of women to build solidarity to consolidate women’s strengths to achieve what we collectively set out to do.
