The goal of Shanti Sewa Griha is to help others help themselves. It provides the means necessary for people of all ages in need of help and protection to come and find refuge at Shanti. Shanti currently cares for a total of approximately 1,000 people in need.
In the meantime, Shanti has become to well-known that people from all over Nepal are sent or brought here. Leprosy sufferers, accident victims, children and adults with physical disabilities due to polio, people with physical or mental handicap, the chronically ill, women expelled by their families, orphans, the blind, the deaf and people who are old and fragile. None of these people enjoy a status in the Nepalese caste society that allows them a life of human dignity.
