Mission and Vision
SASANE’s mission is to end the physical and sexual exploitation of women and girls, ensure their legal rights, and empower them to live free and dignified lives. SASANE believes that survivors themselves have immense potential to combat the exploitation of Nepalese women and girls and to affect social change.
Through training survivors to become certified paralegals and media professionals, we not only empower women to gain economic independence and resist abuse, but also to help thousands of other victims achieve justice and assert their rights. Employing survivors within the legal system can create systemic change, sensitizing law enforcement agents to gender perspectives, and offering victims of gender-based crimes an avenue to be understood and served.
At SASANE, we also believe that each survivor can achieve her individual dream and potential. We envision a Nepal where each survivor is equipped with the self-esteem, skills, and knowledge necessary to become a leader in her chosen field. Through educational scholarships, private-public partnerships facilitating job and internship placements, paralegal trainings, and other crucial services, SASANE is working to help women and girls succeed and thrive.
SASANE also strives to create a Nepal where comprehensive and well-enforced laws protect women and girls from exploitation. Through conducting policy advocacy, evaluating law enforcement practices, providing training, and holding stakeholders accountable, we are working to improve Nepal’s justice system and ensure that victims are adequately served .
