The Social Welfare Council of Nepal listed over two hundred INGOs working in Nepal in the fiscal year 2072/073. Although these organizations have wide-ranging interventions, most engage in some form of dealing with gender based violence (GBV) with a specific focus on women as the victims.

The ubiquity of computers has gained unprecedented momentum in today’s digitalized world. While personal computers have made work easy for individuals, they have also made cataloguing and data processing easier for big companies and government bodies. This has led to a digitalization of information at such a massive scale that all important information today resides on magnetic disks. This information consists of critical data such as health records, citizenship information and criminal records, accessed through systems that aren’t any different from the ones that we use at home.

A home away from home

May 12, 2017 09:45 am

We all know how difficult it is to find hotel rooms that won’t take a chunk of our vacation budget and are lovely and comfortable at the same time. Often times, we end up compromising on one of the two. But it needn’t be that way if you are a little savvy with your searches, and are up for staying at homes instead of hotels.

Cast off Set sail

How to travel is the first key decision we must make while planning a holiday. There are clearly many ways to discover different places and cultures, perhaps even more than you previously assumed.

Goodbye aches

Whether from overwork or under use, most of us have had to deal with muscle aches and pains time and again.
