The organization’s vision is a peaceful and prosperous society where each individual has equal access to and control over resources with mutual respect across gender, class, caste and ethnicity. Their strategy is to empower the community and coordinate with government bodies to provide support to landless, Dalit and indigenous communities.

SF’s 2018-2019 project seeks to address risky employment and labour exploitation through increased income, rights awareness, and stakeholder and media engagement in 5 wards of Sakhuwanankarkatti Rural Municipality in Siraha, Nepal.

The project aims to increase income through the formation of self-help groups, which will receive information on slavery, trafficking and risky employment, sensitisation on human rights issues and livelihoods support. Local government officials and school leaders will be trained to identify families affected by Harawa-Charawa slavery and will support the provision of key government services. Moreover, Samriddha Foundation will coordinate with local journalists to participate in project activities so they might raise the visibility of bonded labour and local efforts to improve labour conditions.
