HBWCSN works with homeworkers in towns and villages, mainly in the Kathmandu region and Dharan. The vast majority of workers in Nepal are working informally, and for women this often means homebased work. HBWCSN has focussed on women doing garment, pote (beaded necklaces), weaving, carding and spinning of wool, machine knitting and paper making. They organise savings, training and marketing and have set up a union for women homebased workers. HBWCSN was founded by Prattima Pokhrel who continues to coordinate their work.
