Who We Are.

Organizational Background
Registered under Association Registration Act 2034 with the Office of District Administration (DAO), Kathmandu and affiliated to the Office of Social Welfare Council (SWC), Sakriya Sath is a non-profit non-governmental social organisation.

Since establishment, it is engaged in various social activities and accumulating the socially useful information materials and then involved in the publication and distribution of the updated information materials. In accordance with that, with hope to control HIV infections and to mitigate the impact of AIDS through the medium of skills and knowledge based on skills useful for life, to improve the sexual and reproductive health of the adolescents, and to maintain cordial and interactive relationship between the parents/guardians and children, Sakriya Sath has developed two workbooks that are suitable and applicable in the Nepali society- ‘Parenting: A Journey of Love’ (Knowledge and Skills for Parents and Guardians) and ‘My Life – Starting Now’ (Knowledge and Skills for Young Adolescents). Developed by integrating the social values and beliefs, these workbooks consist of religious texts, great religious thoughts, and religious interpretations of the major four prevailing religions of Nepal. With the expressive and interactive participations of the related religious leaders, the workbooks has been edited and published aiming towards the parents/guardians and children of the Nepali community.

With the rising demand from the sides of different organizations and communities involved in social transformation, based on the workbooks, trainings are conducted at different parts and communities and schools of Nepal. The trainings have been helpful, at the community level, in women’s participation and their empowerment, family conflict resolution, and specifying the positive and life-useful directions. Similarly, Sakriya Sath is striving for the positive and comprehensive growth and development of the children with the help of radio cartoon series and stories, which is developed and conceptualized by Sakriya Sath team and which might be the first of its kind. The organisation’sprogramme and activities are focused on defending and securing the children, who are the pillars of the future, and adolescents from drug abuse and preparing them as a good citizen. Apart from these, Sakriya Sath have been promoting and broadcasting the various developed and updated radio information in the interest of the public all over the region.

Sakriya Sath recently is also involved in increasing HIV & SRHR related knowledge and skills to earthquake affected youth of remote areas in Dhading district. Dhading is one of the most earthquake affected district with a majority of population residing in upper north area, due to inconvenience of transport facilities and a straight uphill walking for several days fewer organizations are seen interested in lifting those needy communities. Joining hands with UMN, Sakriya Sath has been a trusty companion for community people, schools, churches (Parents and students) at those places. Sakriya Sath also designs radio programs and PSA’s for UMN (Disaster Risk Response Program) in these districts.
