  • Bahini

    The story behind Bahini started 2014 in Kathmandu, Nepal.

    Bahini's founder Miyabi volunteered to support the NGOs "Change Action Nepal" and "SHE=Precious" in their work for human rights. Instantly she was welcomed as a sister among the Nepali women, and learnt that the younger girls were called bahini, which means "little sister". Apart from the loving sisterhood she also witnessed the prominent gender inequalities in the Nepalese society.

    When she returned from Nepal she started to investigate what she could do to help Nepalese girls in their fight for independence. Over the years that followed, while working in Stockholm within IOT and hardware production, she planned and saved up money, in order to be able to fully focus on starting a social enterprise. And so, in 2016 she left the corporate world to set up Bahini, with a mission to empower girls and raise awareness about sex-trafficking.
