Nisa Foundation

Stand alone Transitional/ Second Stage Housing

When women are empowered and supported, the entire community benefits & flourishes. These women go onto build healthy homes, strong communities, and inspire future generations. Our mission isn't just to provide immediate support, shelters or counselling; it's about building futures and fostering communities where women's empowerment is a driving force.
