Women’s Safe House Project in Nepal blessed and well underway for the next phase

This year marks the 3 year anniver­sary and com­ple­tion of oper­a­tional funds to start the Wom­en’s Safe House. We would like to thank all of our MM donors who helped to make this match­ing fundrais­ing goal and project a suc­cess! On to the next phase!

We’re thrilled to share the incred­i­ble progress of the Chang­ing Lives Nepal Women’s Safe House, Sam­rid­hi Ghar (House of Pros­per­i­ty). Nes­tled in the Himalayan moun­tains of Nepal’s Sankhuwas­b­ha Dis­trict, this project has pro­vid­ed women in the region that are vic­tims of domes­tic abuse, traf­fick­ing, rape, and oth­er forms of vio­lence a place to regain their integri­ty with the assis­tance from the safe house. This jour­ney, made pos­si­ble by the gen­er­ous sup­port of our donors, is trans­form­ing vision into real­i­ty and pro­vid­ing need­ed sup­port in the region.


A heart­felt thank you to all our Moun­tain Mad­ness (MM) donors whose con­tri­bu­tions helped achieve our fundrais­ing goal for this project – a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Chang­ing Lives Nepal (CLN) and All The Sky (ATS) . Spe­cial grat­i­tude goes to our Found­ing Mem­bers for their unwa­ver­ing belief in our mis­sion and for cat­alyz­ing the launch of the Safe House. With the ini­tial three year pro­gram the via­bil­i­ty and val­ue of the the safe house was estab­lished. With that, the pro­gram has moved ahead with the con­struc­tion of a per­ma­nent facil­i­ty for the House of Prosperity.

Since break­ing ground last Octo­ber, the site has seen remark­able devel­op­ments: from land clear­ance to the instal­la­tion of earth­quake-resis­tant struc­tures, from plumb­ing instal­la­tions to the plant­i­ng of fruit trees for sus­tain­abil­i­ty. Every step for­ward is a tes­ta­ment to your kind­ness and commitment.


The Safe House now, designed to have 12 res­i­den­tial bed­rooms and essen­tial facil­i­ties, is not just a shel­ter but a bea­con of hope for women in cri­sis. Thanks to the thor­ough over­sight of our Cana­di­an con­struc­tion part­ner, Anoth­er Brick in Nepal, the project is pro­gress­ing smoothly.

Your con­tin­ued sup­port is not only build­ing a sanc­tu­ary for sur­vivors but also fos­ter­ing a com­mu­ni­ty ded­i­cat­ed to edu­ca­tion and advo­ca­cy for wom­en’s rights in Nepal. Togeth­er, we’re shap­ing a future with a goal to find a place where every woman feels empow­ered and protected.
