According to WHO reports, majority of global suicidal cases are related to poverty.

At the moment, we are passing through hard times. Worldwide Covid 19 pandemic is pushing people almost backwards. In Nepal, people of low socio-economic status & wage laborers are the most vulnerable to hitting street. They are under big economic & psychosocial stress. We want to intervene in cases of gender-based violence, hopelessness & suicidal crisis & transform individuals into productive members of the society. We want to connect government bodies, civil society, potential organizations & generous individuals with those needy people & create an atmosphere of loving & caring society.
Let’s come together, feel dignified by supporting people in need. Stay safe, happy & active!
