Support Nepal (SNP) is a not-for-profit, non-government organization working strategically to restore imbalances and inequalities being faced by minority and marginalised groups since 1996.

Presence in: Nepal
Focus: Citizenship & Identification, Governance, Accountability & Transparency, Livelihoods, Peace-building & Transitional Justice, Right to Information, Women's Rights

Development of training, networking, models of effective development practice, research and influencing policy has been the focus of SNP’s strategic works. The increasing focus of SNP has been on providing support to communities and to develop processes that promote the inclusion of the minority and marginalised groups. Three core strategic objectives drive our work:

  1. To establish as a resource organization for information, coordination and dialogue on policy and practice in the Nepalese NGO sector on minority issues.

  2. To protect and promote minority rights in transition to federalism in Nepal.

  3. To promote development of process and practice of appropriate measures reducing the adverse impact of climate change on minority groups.

Hello. I'm Rakesh Karna, and am associated with Support Nepal which works strategically to address the inequalities and discrimination faced by the minority and marginalized groups in Nepal since 1996. My role is to provide strategic advise, guidance and support to the organization in policy dialogue, design of the advocacy campaigns and capacity building initiatives. As Nepal is a country of minorities, both by number and the experiences, a majority of the national population faces different sets of stigma and exclusion people face due to their identity based on language, religion, sex and caste/ethnicity. I think it is important that organization like ours, who often remain off the mainstream, can benefit a lot from the platform like NAMATI. This is so by joining a family of dedicated and devoted individuals and organizations who share not just the stories and practices but also the experience due to the lack of justice, and lawlessness in their lives. In addition, we may have differences in the origin, geography or language that we speak, but we all strive for a movement for justice that is just for all and not for the few.
Rakesh Karna is the network champion (main point of contact) for Support Nepal.
