PA Nepal is a grass roots organisation that seeks to provide basic needs and human rights to prisoners and their children; one of the most vulnerable groups in Nepal. In particular, we work within poor rural communities where our support creates new opportunities for women who have been released from prison.
PA Nepal mission is to rid prisons of unnecessary suffering and hardship, in particular the suffering experienced by innocent children and prisoners who are poor and disadvantaged. It wants to help transform prisons into places that work to help prisoners build worthwhile and rewarding futures.

75% of prisoners in Nepali prisons are found to be innocent when their case comes to trial, which can take many years
3 out of 4 prisoners suffer from mental illness like depression and anxiety.
People with mental diseases are more easily taken advantage of and more often wrongly accused of crimes.
More than 16.000 people are currently in prison in Nepal.
Poverty and inequality in Nepal cause social stigmas, conflict, health issues and political and cultural restraints.
Indira and PA Nepal have made hundreds of visits to prisons around Nepal, implementing positive change through education, employment, health and child care programs.
We have advocated for the rights of females in Nepal to promote the safety, health and education of our mothers and daughters. We believe everyone has a responsibility to stop practices that harm women and girls, such as trafficking, child marriage and illiteracy.
