Who we are

Since its inception the foundation has laid immense emphasis on serving the society at large and impacting as many lives as possible. It has always aimed at holistic development of the community people exerting importance to all demographics equally. GVS is trying to place focus on the lower section of the society who are unable to access basic level of resources for existence. All people of community including women, children and senior citizen are being benefited by the projects.

Mental illness is directly linked to poverty as well as gender-related issues such as child marriage, low social status, lack of education and physical abuse. Some 85% of the global poor live in rural communities and the majority of them are women. But rural women are the most under-researched segment of the global population, said Saionara König-Reis, UN Representative and head of the New York office of Dianova International. Their needs require further study since rural women do not comprise a homogenous group, but vary from community to community. Their living experiences are so multiple and the nuances are so important.

Globally, one-third of all women are victims of abuse. In rural China, abuse is a fundamental issue in women’s suicide. Women are twice as likely to be depressed as men, and rape victims are at particular risk. Young rape victims can experience severe mental problems, and need to be supported by professional services at the community level.

GVS has ventured into mutually-beneficial relationships with the Government to help create a visible change in the community. Additionally, a lot of corporates have lend their helping hand to help us achieve the vision that the foundation has aimed at since its initiation.

Our Work

We are dedicated to improving the mental health and psychosocial well-being of individuals and communities. Our work is focused on prevention, promotion, capacity building, stigma reduction, and advocacy with stakeholders.

  • We believe that mental health is an integral part of overall health and well-being, and that everyone has the right to access high-quality mental health services and support.
  • We work closely with communities to identify their unique needs and to develop tailored programs and services that are effective, sustainable, and culturally appropriate.

One of our key areas of focus is prevention.

  • We believe that by addressing mental health issues before they become more severe, we can help individuals and communities build resilience and improve their overall quality of life.
  • To this end, we offer a range of prevention programs and services that aim to promote mental wellness, build coping skills, and reduce risk factors for mental health problems.

Another important aspect of our work is capacity building.

  • We believe that empowering individuals and communities with knowledge and skills is key to creating lasting change.
  • We offer training and education programs that equip individuals with the tools they need to support their own mental health and that of others.

Stigma reduction is also a critical component of our work.

  • We know that stigma and discrimination can prevent individuals from seeking the help they need, and can exacerbate mental health problems.
  • We work to raise awareness about mental health issues, challenge negative stereotypes and beliefs, and promote a more accepting and inclusive society.

Finally, advocacy with stakeholders is an important part of our work.

  • We believe that systemic change is necessary to improve mental health outcomes, and we work to engage with policymakers, health care providers, and other stakeholders to promote policies and practices that support mental wellness.

Overall, our work is aimed at creating a more mentally healthy and resilient world, one community at a time. We are committed to ensuring that all individuals have access to the care and support they need to thrive.

Our ongoing, online counseling project with CWWPP (COALITION FOR WORK WITH PSYCHO-TRAUMA & PEACE) add as a benchmark to support affected people in any places of Nepal. We welcome diversity background and provide national and international facilitator to support you.

Our Mission

To work amongst the deprived and underprivileged community to inspire and motivate them to realise their human dignity, develop their own capacity and help them to solve their own problems. The organisation strives to work for the social and economic development of the people by providing whatever practical help they need in the form of information, advice, capacity building, training and support.


Prevention of poor mental health is not only possible, but urgently needed. Our strategy affirms our commitment to making prevention happen, so that people across the Nepal can live mentally healthier lives.

We are focusing on three key areas:

  1. Impact: We will systematically consider how to scale ideas informed by evidence. We will build partnerships and alliances that increase the impact and reach of our work.
  2. Influence: We will harness evidence and the voice of lived experience to advocate for preventive approaches and create campaigns which tackle the root causes of poor mental health.
  3. Integrity: We will continue to build a strong organisation that lives its values - that is open, kind, outward-looking and sustainable.
