Laxmi Pratisthan

Laxmi Pratisthan is a memorial foundation founded by the family members and well-wishers in the memory of Late Kumar Gautam and Late Balram Gautam. It is established under the name of Laxmi Gautam, the mother of the deceased, for her consolation, having herself as the Patron and the father Bishnu Gautam as a Chairman. Kumar Gautam passed away on 29th December 2008 in a motorcycle accident and Balram Gautam left us shockingly on 3rd October 2009 in Oklahoma, US, just nine months after the demise of his elder brother Kumar.

The reason behind the foundation of Laxmi Pratisthan is to divert minds of the family members from this very rare and shocking incident and to pay tribute to the departed souls by contributing to the society with the positive approach. It will work for humanity regardless of age, gender, color, caste, race, and religion. Thus, the foundation has aimed to work in the favor of socially backward and underprivileged communities particularly women and children in the remote areas of Nepal. The Foundation has conceived Vocational Training Oriented Basic Education Program for the women which will empower them by rendering self-dependent with literacy. The helpless children and orphans will also be in priority for education. Health awareness programs will also be carried out for the awareness of the locals to reduce the number of infant mortality and pregnancy-related mortality rate. The Traffic Awareness Programs will also be in priority having coordination with schools, colleges, and traffic police in an effort to reduce the increasing road accident, particularly among the youths.

Kanda Transformation Campaign

Kanda is a remote village under Lother V.D.C. Chitwan. To reach Kanda, it takes 2 hours by vehicle from Bhandara to Hattidhap and 6 hours of uphill climb from Hattidhap to Kanda.
 

In Kanda, 85 families of Chepang community consisting of 865 people reside. The Chepangs are one of Nepal’s most disadvantaged indigenous groups and are classified under the ‘highly marginalized’ category on the basis of a set of socio-economic indicators, such as population size, language, literacy rate, house type, land ownership.

As the world has turned out to be a small village with improved technological development in this 21st Century, news and information are at the tip of the finger. Pressing a button, we could receive the delivery of our order. On the other hand, there is still a mass of people living the live resembling of the 18th century. It’s hard to believe but the story is real. No rays of civilization and development entered Kanda, a remote village of Chitwan. It could be reached after a few hours (about 6 hours) of walk from where the road ends as no facilities could reach there. They are deprived of all the basic rights and facilities they deserve as a citizen of the nation.

 

“Having known the situation of Kanda, we marched ahead through our operation to Kanda for bringing happiness to the ignorant people, again making them dream life of dignity and bring them to the mainstream.”
