In collaboration with our partner organisations in Nepal, our mission is to reintegrate women and girls affected by sex trafficking and abuse to be full participants of their communities, through individualised holistic care and education.
We value local knowledge and expertise. We recognise that sustained change occurs when women and girls articulate their needs and drive their own development.
We recognise that a person who has experienced significant trauma has complex needs. We take a whole-of-person approach to provide each girl with the best chance for a future of independence, dignity and realised potential.
We believe in the transformative power of education. When a girl is educated she is empowered to create change for herself, her family and her community.
We acknowledge that we are all part of a connected global community. We provide Australians with the opportunity to improve the lives of our sisters in Nepal, through responsible, targeted and sustainable engagement.
Didi means older sister in Nepali and is a term of affection and respect. Our name is representative of the role we play in Nepal, one guided by listening, learning and empowering.
We are committed to protecting each girl’s privacy and ensuring no further exploitation occurs, which is why you won’t find many photos of the women and girls we work with here. We will never share the identity of a girl under 18 and will only use identifying photos of those over 18 with their permission.
Our commitment and responsibility to protect the women and girls we work with from further harm means that our team and all our volunteers adhere to a Child Protection Policy.
Project Didi Australia is committed to restoring hope, dignity and independence to women and girls in Nepal exposed to trafficking and abuse, through trauma-informed care, family strengthening and reintegration, education and pathways to employment.
