Inspired by a group of young abandoned children living on the streets in Pokhara, Nepal and the prospect of making a difference in not only their lives but that of many, SATHI NEPAL was founded by Trish Ginnelly, Ireland, and Kristen Leadem, USA, after a life changing visit to Nepal in 1998. Today we are amazed and grateful to see how our efforts and the growth of SATHI NEPAL has positively impacted the lives of thousands of disadvantaged Nepalese children and their families.

SATHI Nepal (USA) provides leadership, excellence in programming and capacity development for its Nepalese implementing partner, SATHI Nepal (Nepal). Sathi Nepal is registered in both the United States and Nepal. The organizations work in partnership and are governed by a Board of Directors in each country. Sathi employees 13 Nepalese staff, including several graduates of our education programs.
