18-year-old Sonu Chaurasiya marks and celebrates his first year of sobriety at our “School of Recovery”-a residential drug rehabilitation center in Birgunj, Parsa.

Celebrating sobriety “birthday” is a valuable practice at our schools to salute how far one has come from complete self-loathing to find meaning and purpose. Through our “Schools of Recovery”, we provide transformative and rehabilitative services against drug abuse and crime among youth in the rapidly growing communities of eastern and central Terai-Madhesh, including cross-border districts. The program is run by a network of former drug users and ex-convicts and over 60 percent of the funds are generated locally.
