JOURNEY OF KCDC
With the KCDC we make, we do to change our lives and the lives of those around us. We made the KCDC to believe that women and girls can become the change agents in communities to fight domestic violence and sex trafficking. We believed they have the courage, the remarkable commitment and the loving-kindness to do this. This gave birth to the KCDC in 1993. We started with a firm belief that giving women and girls the power to make their own choices to live lives free of abuse, violence and exploitation is an immense step forward. Those KCDC and its partners have the power to change their future and the future of other women and girls in their communities in the world.
In 25 years of KCDC, we mark our 25 years anniversary of KCDC in 2018. The first 25 years has been a fearless and passionate journey with a committed team – we are proud of our progress and humbled to have come so far since our humble beginnings in 1993. Over the years, our programs evolved, our knowledge expanded, our team grew and reached thousands of people. We have come a long way since training our first group of Operation Peace Makers and community women who are the facilitators of change in their communities. We realized our ambition of creating our own Safe Team, a place of refuge and hope for new beginnings for women and children. With our work and reach in Domestic Violence growing and expanding, we started getting calls on our helpline of missing children or young girls that have been trafficked. The true scale of children and young girls that went missing or being trafficked was astronomical. We couldn’t keep quiet. We stepped into the unknown waters, but we had the grit, spirit and courage and the work of Operation Red Alert began in 2019.
Braving the long and rocky foot tracks and walk paths, we travelled thousands of miles to reach the far hills and mountain parts of the country to educate families about the importance of protecting their children, women and communities from traffickers. Fast forward to the present, we have grown into one of community based pioneer NGOs KCDC focused on the prevention of sex trafficking, CSEC and Modern Slavery. Our days are long, the journey is hard. We deal with a lot of pain, grief and sorrow, and this grief sometimes sinks deep into our bones. It breaks us but makes us stronger, tougher and fiercer. We, at KCDC, are warriors and survivors. We have shown and proved that when a group of committed and passionate people come together, we can make a lasting difference.
From 1993 to 2023, KCDC has empowered thousands of children, women, families and communities to make transformative choices to live lives free from abuse, violence and sexual exploitation in Nuwakot, Rasuwa, Dhading and Sindhupalchowk district and Kathmandu and Lalitpur (Kathmandu Valley) in Nepal, in more than 600 locations across the nation of Nepal. It would not be possible without the support of our generous donors over the course of the last 30 years.
The fire within us is burning bright; a steady radiance of fearless, unstoppable and powerful glow. We know who we are and what needs to be done. We have done it before. We will do it again for the next decade and many more decades down the line. We will continue to plan, refine our thinking and build on our vision to give every woman and girl the choices to live a life free from abuse, violence and exploitation. We are determined to make it happen. Read about our journey in giving women and girls the choice to live a life free from violence and abuse in Nepal.
