Weʼre raising £300 to Support SASANE a charity project I visited in 2016 supporting victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation in Nepal.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I've decided to run Cardiff 10k in Sept. When I visited Nepal in 2016 I had the honour of meeting some of the most incredible women and girls I have ever met, they were survivors of human trafficking, forced marriage or domestic and sexual slavery and their bravery, resilience and dignity had quite a profound effect on me.
Ever since then I have wanted to do something to raise money for them but time seems to have run away with me and now it's just over 2 years since I visited. Unfortunately being based in Nepal they cant join Just Giving direct but I can fundraise for them via the crowdfunding platform here.
Please consider sponsoring me to help these incredibly bright and proactive women to do more of their amazing work.
"SASANE is a survivor-led organization established in 2008 under the founding principle that women survivors of human trafficking have immense potential to combat the exploitation of Nepalese women and girls, and to create social change.
Since the organization’s founding in Kathmandu and expansion to Pokhara and seven village areas, four key and interrelated programs (Paralegal, SOS, School Awareness & Community Outreach) have been created through an innovative strategy which combines paralegal training, small business development, school awareness, and community outreach. These interdependent programs assume a rights-based approach to break the cycles of exploitation and victimization, increase women’s access to justice, and reintegrate survivors into society as valued and respected members of their community."
