Everyone Has The Potential
To Change The World

And That Includes You!

Let’s face it.
None of us are starving students anymore.

We have our homes, and our families, and our social commitments, and our favorite dishes at our favorite restaurants.

None of us want to give up our green juices and fast cars.

Few of us are on the brink of putting everything on pause and going away to volunteer for a few years.

So we look at all the things going wrong in the world and assume it’s not our fight.

It’s for the ones who are still twenty. The happily broke. The ones with a little martyr in their DNA.

You don’t need to dedicate your entire life to service, or become a card-carrying minimalist, or wear rags, or grow into it.

If you have air in your lungs, some time on your hands, or maybe a bit more cash than you need for your lattes, you’re ready to fight poverty and abuse NOW.

Do Good Now. Feel Good Now.
And be the change already. We’ll help.

Welcome to share our latest dream and empowerment-over-pity project in Nepal, with the purpose of stop human trafficking for commercial sexual exploitation.

We are building a safe home and offering education, medical attention and trauma therapy for young girls who have been rescued from being sold to brothels or as workers under slave like conditions. Architect Sara Pinto has drawn the first construction plan together with Helena Nyhlén, our project leader. A large plot of land (32,000 sqf) in the southeastern suburbs of Kathmandu is rented on a long term basis and we cannot wait to put the first brick in place.

Real solutions. Not Pity.

The Transithome will be run by the Non profit organization ABC Nepal (http://abcnepal.org.np/wp/), an organization that Do Good Now have been sponsoring since 2010. ABC Nepal have today several transit homes in Nepal and one transit home in Kathmandu. The house that we are building will provide them with the opportunity to support more girls but also to give the girls better facilities and space to be able to assimilate the schooling and studies that they need, to be able to grow up to be an independent and self -sufficient adult. Since 2010 Do Good Now have each year donated about 20.000 dollar or euro (?) to ABC Nepal. This money has been used for the following: 10 girls will get a house to live in and an own bed, School admission, school uniforms, school material (such as books and stationery), counselling cost, food, private clothes, extra activities. (the other 17 girls will be supported through other donors such as UN and the government of Nepal).

We have also paid for the salary and pension to the coordinator at the transit home. Street drama and orientation at school with the purpose to spread the information about trafficking. We also pay for two persons at the information desk at the unattended boarder between Nepal and India, Brijatnagar., who work to identify suspected trafficking with children.

We also aim to spread awareness about human trafficking to the large number of tourists who flock to Nepal trekking and exploring the glorious mountains. Normally they stay a couple of nights in Kathmandu before setting off in the Himalayas. Therefore, we will also build a home-away-from-home, a B&B and Info Centre. The B&B will be run by ABC Nepal and the profit will go straight back to the organization at to the girls. In the garden ABC Nepal will be able to grow vegetables that they can use or to sell in the market. The B&B and the garden will help ABC Nepal to be self-sustainable to a greater extent than today.

Not only will we offer an incredible warmth and accommodation but empower the girls and women who have been victimized through human trafficking and sexual exploitation, to learn how to run a B&B and financially support not only their dreams of education but also empowering their human development AND building their community up, through education and ridding the population from poverty one step at a time.

Pity doesn’t help.
Real solutions do.

The people we support are strong,
and resilient, and survivors.
They don’t need our empathy.
They need to finally catch a break.

And we invite you to support us to help finance the building of both the Safe Home and Bed & Breakfast.

OUR GUARANTEE: No more than 25% of all monies raised go towards our administrative running costs – this is in accordance to the regulations for NGOs and charities with a 90-account ”90-konto”. However, our intention is to never exceed 10% in administrative costs.
