ANURADHA KOIRALA

Social Activist, Founder and Director of Maiti

Nepal
For more than twenty years, she taught English at various reputed schools of Kathmandu. Mother Teresa

was the biggest source of inspiration to initiate a mission for the betterment of humankind. Therefore , in

1993 Ms. Koirala founded Maiti Nepal with the aim of providing services for both children and women who

have endured untold pain and suffering, often in silence. Children ,girls and women were being trafficked

within and from Nepal for commercial sexual exploitaion. She set up Maiti Nepal with a vow to put an end

to this heinous crime.

After establishing Maiti Nepal, she plunged into the service of humanity. Her first work was setting up of a

rehabilitation home so that she could provide a home to those who have nowhere else to turn to. Now,

Maiti Nepal has three prevention homes, nine transit homes, two hospices and a high school. More than

one thousand children are getting direct services from Maiti Nepal everyday. She made it possible with her

firm determination and unprecedented leadership.

Maiti Nepal today conducts a wide range of activities. Conducting awareness campaigns, community

Sensitization, rescue operations, Apprehending Traffickers, providing legal support to the needy, women

empowerment programmes, providing anti retro viral therapy(ART) to children and women infected BY HIV

are regular activities of Maiti Nepal.

So far, Anuradha koirala has been provided 30 national and international award in recognition of her

courageous acts and lifetime acheivement furthering the cause of children's and women's rights. Some of

the international awards includes German UNIFEM Prize 2007, Queen Sofia Silver Medal Award 2007,

The Peace Abbey, Courage of Conscience 2006 etc. Her achievements include liberating twelve

thousand girls from brothels, providing ART before the government of Nepal could initiate this process. Due

to her continuous struggle, Governmment of Nepal recognized anti –trafficking day, which falls on 5

September. This endeavour was initiated by Maiti Nepal. She was also appointed as a state minister as

an honour to her contributions.

Ms. Koirala loves spending time with children, they say that they get a warmth of mother and a father. She

is self motivated person relishing new and dynamic challenges with a leadership role if required in a team

environment or independently.

On 23rd September Ms. Koirala was selected as Top-10 CNN Heros. The global voting through the

website of CNN would determine CNN hero of the year. It was the result of her struggle and compassion

to fight the social evil of human trafficking , that CNN has recognized her as a TOP 10 Heroes of the world

list. This honour to the daughter of Nepal is a Pride for our Nation.
