She was herself a victim of years of abuse at the hands of her husband. She had three miscarriages after which her marriage ended. But her self-respect and determination to serve humanity did not.
She had been teaching English at various schools in Nepal, earning a meagre $100 per month. She invested part of this income in establishing a small retail shop to employ and support displaced victims of domestic violence and sex trafficking. Being a victim of domestic violence herself, she could empathise with the women who came into her fold.
However, the provision of a means of earning to the displaced women was not enough. A lot more needed to be done and all of it could not be achieved unless a bigger institution was established. Keeping this in mind, Anuradha, along with other teachers, journalists and social workers, laid the foundation of Maiti Nepal in 1993. You can visit the website here.
“Maiti” in Nepalese means “mother’s home”. It is an apt name for this NGO because it acts as a mother itself, taking within its folds Nepali girls and women who have been subjected to various forms of crimes, like domestic violence, human trafficking, child prostitution, child labour, and so on, often in silence. After all, who was there to listen to their stories, let alone understand their plight? A lot of philanthropists and humanitarians from around the globe donate to Maiti.
