About the Campaign
The word “KOSHISH” means “making an effort”. They follow a twin-track approach, i.e., advocacy and direct service delivery. They were affiliated with Social Welfare Council, under the Ministry of Women, Children and Social Welfare (Affiliation No. 25676), and registered under the District Administration Office, Kathmandu (Registration No. 086/065) in 2008. Since 2008, advocacy for inclusion and dignity of people with mental health and psychosocial issues, as well as transforming lives of people living in vulnerable conditions, has been the forefront of their goals.
The activities that they run are focused on improving the quality of life of people living with mental health and psychosocial issues, reintegration of clients back into their communities, de-stigmatization of mental illnesses in Nepal, eliminating social, cultural and legal barriers regarding mental health and psychosocial disability issues.
Where will the funds go?
Just a little support from your side would improve the lives and condition of people mental disabilities help them lead a normal life, accepted in the society. The funds raised through this platform will be utilized to help over a hundred women suffering from violence in Nepal. Koshish plans to provide emergency services to 100 Nepalese women and girls that have suffered from violence and been abandoned in streets due to mental health issues. Let us understand mental problems and treat people with mental illness, just as we would treat a person with a physical disease, and show empathy not pity.
