Saathi’s strategy is to work at all levels of Nepali society – from the government to the grassroots level. At the policy level, Saathi has been involved, in partnership, in drafting key legislation regarding domestic violence and is advocating for the passage of this bill. Saathi is also involved in the women’s movement to improve the status of women in Nepal. Recognizing the need to particularly reach the grassroots level in order to achieve its goals, Saathi has established branch offices in the Banke and Bardiya districts of Western Nepal. These Branch offices work towards eliminating violence against women and children and community development and also support women and children victimized by armed conflict. Saathi has recently started working in the area of cross-border trafficking of women and children.
