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.

Global Giving,
Here is my report for the Empowering Survivors of Human Trafficking (6231)
Report: Beginning of The Paralegal Training Program 2016
Recently, SASANE has started its paralegal training program 2016 both in Kathmandu and Pokhara. We have 30 girls and women coming everyday in SASANE office to receive the training. This time we have all the 30 girls who have been rescued from brothels in India and are all the survivors of human trafficking. This time the syllabus of the paralegal training has been changed and we had a slight difficulty in organizing the paralegal training. 
We will have the theoretical training for one month where we will be teaching them about the legal rights and information regarding the constitution and human rights. The girls this time are able to grab the things taught quite easily. After the theoretical training we will have the girls placed in the police stations as the part of their practical internship.
With your little help we will be able to help these girls get the legal information and also help them gain economic independence. We expect that we will get the help from your side always in the future as well.
Thank you!

After the distribution of the relief materials to the paralegal girls and their family, Samrakshak Samuha Nepal (SASANE) is now moving towards the rehabilitation program i.e. helping the 105 paralegal girls who have their house either severely damaged or completely destroyed make small temporary bamboo and wood houses. In the beginning of this project (SASANE) has recently completed the approval letter procedures to start our earthquake rehabilitation program for the 105 girls. We have already received the letters from District Administration Office, Nepal and the Social Welfare Council, Nepal. A special meeting was held in the SASANE office with the government agencies. Our target group and the process of help was put forward by SASANE in the meeting.
The two government agencies has set up a monitoring and evaluation committee to check on our progress in the recovery and rehabilitation program. Talking about the development in the project, we have already distributed the form to the girls who have been a severe victim of the April 2015 earthquake. The girls whose house has been either damaged or completely destroyed can fill up the application mentioning their house location, type of help needed with two photographs of the damaged or destroyed house.
We have a huge number of girls coming to us for help and we are hoping that we will be able to help them all. The situation of the girls is deteriorating day by day as we have a cold and chilly weather here lately and the girls have been living in tents and tepee. We want to help these girls build small temporary bamboo or wood houses so that they can live in and stay warm.
With your little help we will be able to help these girls to start living their normal life again. We hope we will get your support in this project. 
Thank you!

We have announced the notice in the organization's website and also send the notice via email to all the national organizations working for women and children. We will begin the training program from 2nd January' 2016.

    We have already received more than 100 applications from the female human trafficking survivors keen to receive the paralegal training. The number will increase further as we have a lot of women and girls visiting us for information. We will receive the application only till 30 November' 2015. After the application process, the SASANE staffs will move on with the screening process.

    The district court of Nepal has certain requirements to be followed for the paralegal course: 

    i) The person willing to pursue the paralegal career should have a certificate mentioning that the person has succesfully passed grade 10, and

    ii) The person willing to puruse the paralegal career should be a citizen of Nepal and should have a citizenship certificate proivded by the Government of Nepal. 

    These two requirements will be checked in the screening process and further there are other considerations as well which SASANE has for the eligibility in the Paralegal Training Program. They are:

    i) The girl or woman submitting the application should be the survivor of either Human Trafficking or Gender-based violence.

    ii) The girl or woman having an unavoidable past and is in the risk of getting re-trafficked.
