SAFE NEPAL is a non-political, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization; officially registered in the Kathmandu District Administration Office, and affiliated with Social Welfare Council (SWC) Kathmandu.We are working to raise awareness in the fields of School-based HIV/AIDS, Oral Health, Environmental issue and Community Health programs.
In relation to educating people about HIV/AIDS, our focus is on Peer Education, creating community dialogue, and influencing local and national policy-makers about strategies for preventing HIV infection, and caring for and treating HIV-positive individuals. We aim to educate and inform youths, school children, and college students. Outside our schools and colleges, occupational groups are the principal target for our programs in the community at large, groups such as sex workers, truck drivers, migrant workers, drug users, MSM, barbershop workers and under-privileged groups. And also sexually active young adults, we want to raise public awareness about the issues of HIV/AIDS through Peer Education campaigns, trainings, Street Drama, booklets, seminars and community based programs.
