About SASANE Sisterhood Trekking and Travel
SASANE translates to, “Let’s Protect Ourselves.” And this is true to the core spirit of our Sisters. All our guides are survivors of human trafficking that have been trained as trekking and tour guides. Training survivors ultimately provides the Sister’s with opportunities to build marketable skills, self-esteem and economic independence to help keep them out of the cycle of violence and become leaders in any field they choose. As of 2018, SASANE has provided job opportunities to 371 female survivors of human trafficking.

Review of: Cooking Class
I had so much fun last weekend doing a hike to Nagarkot, an overnight stay, sunrise hike, tour of two UNESCO world heritage sites with Laxmi. We ended with a momo cooking class back at Sasane, where I got to meet some of the sisters, learn about the organization and hear cheerful voices of the students in their paralegal class going on in the next room. This organization specializes in off-the-beaten path travel, connecting you to local communities, while still ensuring you get to see the famous sites Nepal is known for. Laxmi planned and arranged the itinerary, transport and food and was such a fun, caring guide. I cannot recommend this tour company enough especially for solo female travelers. I felt very safe and accompanied. I got a glimpse into real stories from real people we met in communities along the way. The passion they have for connecting communities to sustainable sources of income, while protecting and educating women and girls is incredibly moving. I will definitely do a longer trek if I can.

Review of: Cooking Class
My friends and I had a wonderful time learning to make momos and learning about the inspiring work done by the Sasane Sisterhood. In addition to having a mentored, hands-on cooking experience, we were treated to a delicious meal, and more momos than we could eat, accompanied by freshly made sauces. One of our teachers presented a lecture on the work done by Sasane to combat human trafficking, rescue victims of trafficking, and provide them with skills and support to re-enter society as productive, empowered women. I highly recommend this experience and this opportunity to meet the members of this transformative organization.

My boyfriend and I visited the SASANE project during our travel across Nepal with G-adventure, one of the supporter. It was touching and very interesting to know more about these brave women and about this amazing project that is the only help for the rehabilitation of survivors of human trafficking. We really enjoyed to learn how to make momo with the survivors! Well done :)

As the others below me have already mentioned, the work that Sasane do to help these young women who have escaped from human trafficking and turn their lives around is truly commendable and warrants a lot of praise! I visited Sasane for a 1 day tour and it was great, the Sisters who were our tour guides were so informative and knowledgable about everything we were doing and would give excellent bits of information about what we were seeing while we were trekking! They also gave us plenty of practical advice while trekking, including what rocks to avoid as they might be slippy. I was throughly impressed by the trek, the guides, the company! I would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone considering trekking in Nepal.
