SASANE (Samrakshak Samuha Nepal)

SASANE is a Nepali NGO established by female survivors of human trafficking on the principle that survivors have great potential to create social change. Staffed primarily by survivors, SASANE works to end the physical and sexual exploitation of women and girls, secure their legal rights, and empower them to live free and dignified lives.

105 paralegal girls receive relief materials

From the massive earthquake that hit Nepal on 25th April 2015, 105 SASANE paralegal girls have become homeless with one of the 2012 paralegals dead. We would like to rehabilitate and help the displaced paralegals live with peace again. With a little financial help we could provide sustainable help to the all 105 displaced paralegals and their family.

Starting from the same week, SASANE provided relief materials to the paralegal girls, their family and their relatives with the basic relief materials. SASANE provided the girls with 25 kgs of rice, 10 kgs of beaten rice, 1 packet of salt, required medicines, soap and blanket. The relief material was distributed in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and Ghyangfedi where there was a huge necessity of the distribution of the relief materials.

There is still alot to be done for the displaced paralegal girls after the massive earthquake. We need your support to bring the paralegal girls back to their normal life and work so they can help themselves and their family.

Thank you!

Paralegals working in tent with the police

Nepal suffered from a massive earthquake that occurred on the 25th of April, 2015 and 12th of May, 2015. The earthquake killed more than 8,600 people and made hundreds and thousands homeless. Maximum political party offices and other government office buildings are either destroyed or completely damaged making them unsafe to work in. Similar is the situation in the police stations of various locations in Kathmandu and Pokhara where our girls have been working.

Many police stations have been damaged making it unsafe for the police personnels and even our paralegal girls to work in. So medium sized tents have been made and situated in the open spaces. The work of police have been going on in the same tent. Our paralegal girls have also been filing FIRs and other reports sitting in the tent as well with the police. 

We are not able to work efficiently and with more confidence as our paralegal girls do not have a house now to live in. One of our paralegal died in the earthquake whereas 5 were severely injured. The trauma of this massive natural phenomemon has not been forgotten by the girls thus effecting their work.Now our organization wants to make a slight contribution in re-shaping the life of the girls after the earthquake so that they can perform their work like they used to earlier.

We would be highle grateful if you would help us in this work of ours. A small effort to bring smile in the face of the survivor paralegal girls would be great.  

Thank you!

The paralegals of the sixth paralegal training received their paralegal certicate. In the sixth paralegal training we had 23 survivor girls and women. They sat for the open competition examination on February 7' 2015. The result of the examination was out on February 12' 2015. 16 out of 23 girls passed the examination successfuly and received their legalized certificates. Now they are the certified paralegals. More than half of the certified paralegals have been working in the busy police stations of Kathmandu, Nepal. 

We have completed the paralegal training program in Pokhara as well. 15 of the paralegal trainees are placed in six police stations of Pokhara for their practical internship. Combining both the paralegals of Kathmandu and Pokhara, they have filed 5, 018 complaints including the court cases and 578 have gotten justice. 

If we get enough funding we are planning to start the paralegal training in Morang as well. As this is also one of the busiest city in Nepal and is near to the Indian border. We hope that we will be able to start the training there soon.
