Our Projects

Youth/Girls Parliament

Utsahi Nepal introduced the Youth Parliament in Nepal, which is the first of its kind in the country. The Youth Parliament aims to create a platform for young people to actively participate in civic and national issues and to increase their awareness and engagement in the functioning of the legislative branch of the government. Through this platform, young people can discuss and debate different social, political, and economic issues and propose solutions and public policies. Utsahi Nepal also invites lawyers and policymakers to discuss the law and provisions of the constitution. The organization plans to expand this project to all seven states of Nepal in the near future, collaborating with larger partners and organizations.

The objectives of the Youth Parliament include creating a common platform for youths and women to participate in various civic and national issues, preparing them to become future leaders, and promoting good governance, accountability, transparency, and the rule of law. The project has had a significant impact, with over 100 young people actively participating in each session. Mock sessions have been conducted to familiarize the youth with parliamentary procedures, and the project has successfully raised awareness among young people about the functioning of parliament.

Prevention of Early Marriage​



The Prevention of Early Marriage project aims to raise awareness about the negative impact of early marriage in the community and empower young girls to make informed decisions about their lives. The project focuses on educating the community, strengthening the capacity and decision-making power of young girls, and promoting collaboration among government agencies. The project utilizes various methods such as role-play, mini-lectures, and media platforms like radio and posters to disseminate information to the community. Through the collective effort of key stakeholders like educational institutes, ward chairpersons, local media, and community-based organizations, the project aims to prevent early marriage and promote a dignified life for young girls

Cheers Talk

Cheers Talk, a platform dedicated to spreading innovative ideas through short and powerful talks, was launched in 2014 in Kathmandu, Nepal. The platform covered a wide range of topics and issues and conducted 37 sessions with different innovators and their innovative ideas. Each session featured one special innovator from diverse backgrounds who had made a positive contribution to society and was successful in their respective fields. The innovators shared their stories and ideas, followed by an interactive session with the audience. Cheers Talk became one of the best youth platforms for sharing ideas, discussing innovative ideas, and networking with like-minded youths for innovations.

The objectives of Cheers Talk were to spread innovative ideas based on facts, data, and a realistic story, to create a unique youth platform for future think tank forums of the nation, and to bring various contemporary issues and discuss solutions through innovations. The platform was interactive, with 37 innovators participating in the sessions, and over 100 youths attending each session. The project successfully achieved its objectives and had a positive impact on the youth, providing them with an opportunity to learn about innovative ideas and network with like-minded individuals.

Reveal your Power



The ‘Reveal Your Power’ project was a mass motivational program for high school students that aimed to help them bring out their inner potential and build self-confidence. Utsahi Nepal assisted students in learning leadership and presentation skills, and also conducted career counseling classes as a part of the project.

Reveal Your Power sessions were conducted in five different districts of Nepal, including Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Gorkha, Butwal, and Banke. Over 4000 students from 35 schools around these areas benefited from the project.

Cheers PRO


Cheers PRO was a program that aimed to develop leadership, debating, and organizational skills among young people and help them build social connections through networking opportunities. The program was held every fortnight in Kathmandu, and 16 different sessions were conducted. Nepali and global experts were invited to the sessions to motivate participants with their success stories, life lessons, and tips on creating vibrant and diverse networking connections.

Over 800 people took direct benefits from the Cheers PRO program. The sessions helped the participants to develop their skills and confidence, and they learned how to network effectively, which would aid their personal and societal development. The program was conducted successfully, and it had a positive impact on the participants.

Trauma relief camp for school children


We organized a trauma relief camp for school children who had been affected by the Nepal earthquake in 2015. We focused on two heavily affected districts, Rasuwa and Nuwakot, and held medical and psycho-socio camps for over 2000 kids. During these camps, we provided special counseling services and organized games to help the children overcome their trauma. We also distributed stationery to support their education and help them return to a sense of normalcy in their daily lives.

The trauma relief camp was an essential initiative to support children who had been affected by the earthquake. We recognized the importance of providing support not just in the form of physical assistance but also in mental and emotional support. The camps helped children deal with their trauma and gave them an opportunity to interact with others in a fun and supportive environment. We were honored to be able to make a positive impact on the lives of these children and their families during difficult times.

Social Dialogue on Reconstruction


We organized a social dialogue on the progress of reconstruction in earthquake-hit districts such as Gorkha, Nuwakot, and Rasuwa. The project served as a watchdog for accountability, listening to local victims about the real problems they faced. We helped many local community members who were unaware of government subsidies that were available to support them. Our efforts helped to raise awareness about the resources that were available to them and to connect them with local government authorities. 

The goal was to help these individuals access the resources they needed to reconstruct their houses following the Nepal earthquake in 2015. The project was a success, and we were able to help many people in need.

Earthquake Relief Activities


In 2015, following the devastating earthquake in Nepal, we partnered with different organizations to collect and distribute relief materials to heavily affected districts of Nepal. We provided essential items such as food, shelter (tents), and medicines to communities in Gorkha, Dhading, Nuwakot, and Rasuwa. Thanks to our efforts, thousands of local victims and their families received direct benefits from our relief initiatives.

Our goal was to help those who were affected by the earthquake and to provide them with the necessary support to get back on their feet. We worked tirelessly to collect and distribute relief materials as quickly as possible to ensure that those in need received assistance. It was a challenging time, but we were grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those affected by the earthquake.

Feeding Street kids in Kathmandu valley​


We carried out a project to feed street and homeless children in Kathmandu valley. Every Friday evening, we provided a good meal to over 50 children, and we also supported them with clothes and basic healthcare facilities. The project aimed to educate, skill and make them independent, and help them to get back to their normal life in the near future. Our goal was to improve the lives of these children and provide them with the necessary support to succeed.

Need-based Scholarship

The need-based scholarship program was initiated with the aim of supporting students who could not afford higher education after completing grade 10. Recognizing the financial burden on families for further education, we partnered with some of the top colleges in Kathmandu valley and convinced them to provide need-based scholarships as part of their corporate social responsibility. With the support of these colleges, we were able to secure full and partial scholarships for deserving students to pursue their education.

Through this program, we were able to identify and select suitable students and connect them with partnering colleges, where they could continue their education without financial burden. The need-based scholarships provided by the colleges covered tuition fees, transportation, and accommodation expenses. This program helped over 100 students achieve their academic goals and pursue their dreams without worrying about financial constraints.

Library Support Project

Partners: Room to Read, Asia Foundation, American Library, UN-Habitat, UNIC

We carried out a library support project aimed at assisting remote community schools and orphanages with books, computers, and sports equipment. The project was designed to promote literacy and education for all, with the aim of creating a more literate and educated youth population that could lead Nepal in the future.

Our goal was to provide equal access to quality education and libraries to all citizens, regardless of social class, ethnicity, or religion. Through this project, we were able to make a positive impact on the lives of many children and young people, providing them with the tools and resources they need to succeed in their studies and pursue their dreams.

Flood & Landline Relief Project


The annual flood and landslide relief projects have been ongoing since 2013. Every year, different fundraising events have been organized, such as online crowdfunding and food festivals in the Kathmandu valley, to raise funds and collect resources for the flood and landslide victims in the terai and far-Western districts of Nepal. These natural disasters make the lives of these communities difficult every year.

Hundreds of families have been supported every year with food, clothing, shelter, and educational materials for school children. These projects have been crucial in providing relief and support for those affected by floods and landslides, and have been made possible by the efforts of the organizers and the generosity of the donors.
