The Women’s Safe House is OPEN!

Dear Donors & Friends,

We are brimming with good news and excited to share it!!

Our Women’s Safe House opened this month in the remote mountains of Nepal. Serving a region of 158,000 people, Samridhi Ghar (House of Prosperity) is a safe space for vulnerable women. The house will provide protection, food and shelter, counseling, and connection to medical and legal services for women coping with domestic violence, rape, trafficking and other situations where they are at risk. Beginning this summer, our team will also conduct regional outreach across Sankhuwasava District to help shift attitudes and cultural norms about the societal problems that Nepalese women face. They will be working to increase awareness about women’s rights and the local laws and resources available to help protect women. We are honored and proud to have partnered with Mountain Madness and All The Sky to make this dream a reality—their grants, fundraising, and trust have made all of this possible!

With warmth and appreciation,

Deana, Nancy, and the CLN Team
