SANO PAILA (A Little Step)
Named for the idea that it often just takes "a little step" to serve one’s community...
Sano Paila (A Little Step) is a member-based, non-governmental, non-partisan organization working towards community development in the socially marginalized and impoverished regions of rural Nepal. Committed to redefining the development sector in Nepal, we take a bottom-up approach to development. We have a track record of diagnosing the most complex problems at grassroots level, conceiving innovative models to solve those problems, and effectively implementing programs by employing diverse and inclusive implementation teams. Our people are our assets, and the single biggest factor for our innovation and continual success in program implementation is our organizational commitment to diversity and inclusion.
“Building unified, self-reliant, and empowered communities to build the nation” Sano Paila aims to build unified, self-reliant & empowered communities in Nepal through sustainable development, rehabilitation and livelihood enhancement, peace-building, health improvement, and educational programs.
“It is a true fact that we ourselves hold the key to social reform and are responsible for the overall development of our communities. We are truly devoted to the idea that as the power of spirit rises within, so does the desire to serve our communities. We constantly seek a comprehensive approach towards care for and advancement of the poor and disadvantaged, and acknowledge that the best means to reach our goal is a large heart, an open mind and innovation based on needs, best practices, and new technologies.”
