In areas of Nepal where we work 1 in 2 girls are married when they are still children.
1 in 3 girls and women experience violence.
At Our Sansar, we believe in innovative approaches and hands-on action. As the only organization in the region addressing the multifaceted challenges confronted by marginalized young girls, our aim is to provide each girl with the tools they need for a promising future.
The EmpowerHER film shows the reality on the ground and how Our Sansar changes the lives of those girls that have no-one else to turn to. It's a powerful story of girls in Nepal that have found a way to build their own future.
Our Sansar is a UK registered charity providing education, shelter and welfare to the most disadvantaged children in Nepal for whom little or no help is forthcoming.
Our Sansar focuses on Province 2 in Southern Nepal, where there are about 400 street children living on the streets and no other organisations working to assist these children. It is the most populous province in Nepal, with more than 10,000 cases a year of violence against girls and women, the highest number of missing children in Nepal, and 50% of children out of school. The Province has the highest number of brick kilns and subsequently is one of the main hotspots in Nepal for child labour. We also aim to locate children before they are trafficked or cross the border and get involved in illegal activities in India.
