My name is Pavitra Pyakurel and I come from Kavre, Fulbari. SAATH has provided me with an opportunity to have a secured livelihood. I live with my elder sister in Baneshwor and I have 5 family members staying at my hometown, Kavre. After the earthquake my home was gone, it was very difficult for us to have a normal lifestyle after that. We used to live in a tent but now we’re slowly trying to build a house for ourselves. It has become much easier for me and my sister to live here at Kathmandu after I started working here at SAATH. Now my parents don’t have to worry about our daily nutrition, from my income I manage our accommodation and my parents are happily relieved to have to support my sister for her further studies. The training I received here has really changed my life in many ways, I feel that now things have more clarity and that even if any hardship falls my way I can deal with a lot more assurance.

Skillfully stitched with passion and hard-work, a versatile sling bag made from Nepali woven Gheri fabric. The blend of colorful strips with a very spacious interior regardless of the size of the bag! The beauty of this bag is that it is perfect match for any day-out occasion!
In response to the recent earthquake in Nepal in 2015, SAATH has started a livelihood and entrepreneurship program.
The program enrolls girls who have been affected by the earthquake. We provide employment opportunity to them to make them more independent as well as secure their livelihood. We have been providing them a platform to enhance their tailoring skills. The produced goods will be sold at local and international market to raise fund to support the education of children who have been affected by the earthquake.
