Support to Koshish Association

 

The Nepalese Koshish association is formed by ex psychiatric patients and it has been established in order to help people in need by providing them with secret shelters or by giving them temporary hospitality in the house of the association's members. 

Koshish relies on the psychiatric hospital as much as is necessary to ensure a correct medicines delivery, but this support is accompanied by the serious work that Koshish is constantly carrying on in the patients' communities and their families in order to rebuild a positive and accepting reality. The association also regularly monitors patients' re-integrations, which are accompanied by tailored projects depending on the person's needs and living context. 

GRT has been working with Koshish for several years now, always by offering them technical and scientific support through small tailored subsidies according to the different needs. A particular economic contribution has been donated when the earthquake occured, in 2015. 

GRT has always found very important to support this association that with little and balanced contributions has really been able to make the difference. 

Mental Health


The incredible strenght of mentally ill people and their disconcerning fragility have made it possible for GRT to be involved in projects to support these people and their families in South America and in the Horn of Africa, particularly in Somalia. 

 

Nepal

In Nepal GRT has been dealing mostly with ethnic minorities and child protection by working closely with local partners. At the same time, after having carefully examined the needs of the country, GRT has also worked with topics such as violence against women and traffic of human beings, especially women and children. The work has mostly been focused on the causes that bring people to be victims, like extreme poverty, family breakdown, domestic violence or gender discrimination. 

GRT has then supported Nepal during the earthquake of 2015 as well as helping the country with the project HelpLine, to defend and promote children's rights in different contexts such as family, school and community.
