Mission

Programs

SASANE's mission is to support and empower women human trafficking survivors in Nepal by training them to become certified paralegals. SASANE's paralegals provide access to justice, free of charge, to other women survivors of human trafficking and gender-based violence in twenty-five police stations across Kathmandu and six police stations in Pokhara. It's a grassroots effort aimed at empowering women survivors through education and tackling the systemic issues in Nepal's legal system from the front lines. This program is helping to change not only each paralegal's life, but the lives of the many women they assist every day.
