About Us

 

Astitwa Nepal is a non-profit organization founded in 2018, working in the sector of acid and burn violence (ABV). We support acid and burn survivors with our four different programs: education scholarship program, medical and psycho- counseling support, skill-based training, and awareness program. Our programs are aimed towards motivating and guiding survivors towards their enrichment. We assist burn survivors during and after the rigorous challenges in their recovery phase. The prime value of Astitwa Nepal is to respect the individuality of the survivors and guide them on their journey to self-acceptance and self- exploration, an initial step towards their self-empowerment.
