SASANE is committed to helping survivors and women still trapped in the sex industry to achieve their dreams, gain independence, and rebuild their self-esteem. In light of Nepal’s devastating economic conditions, we believe that placing women in on-the-job training and personalized internships is the most effective way to guarantee their future employment. By working personally with survivors and understanding their individual skills and long-term goals, we assess the best possible placements, and then bridge partnerships with businesses and organizations that can provide training and professional support.
In our first partnership, survivors and highly at-risk girls will be placed in internships at Nepal’s leading national bank, where they will receive training in management, micro-credit and cooperatives, media and publicity. After several months of training, women will receive counseling from the bank’s staff in applying their skills and gaining employment.
