Training in ‘ART THERAPY for kids and youths’ for Antardristi’s staff members


To train the counselor, outreach coordinators, residential in charge from the safe home, program manager and reintegration officer of Antardristi on Art Therapy for kids and young women.

Antardristi is working in a really taboo sector, especially in Nepal, which does not help to treat the cases.

The staff is really interested to offer an efficient and adapted psychosocial support to these children and young women, whose trauma is really deep.
As Antardristi is working with sexually abuse children and young women, this training will help its staff to make beneficiaries describe and express their feelings and traumas more easily and therefore decrease their anxiety.

Antardristi has experimented, while working with children and young women, that only doing counseling sometimes is not enough to disclose the traumas.
The team believes that it will be easier if they offer the possibility for their beneficiaries to express their feelings in a different way, without speaking.
It will help them to work more efficiently by using a different kind of therapy.

The participants to the training will be the staff directly in contact with the identified cases; as the counselor, the reintegration officer, the program manager and the residential in charge of the safe home.
The outreach workers are the people who are giving awareness classes in different areas of Nepal. While giving these awareness classes, they also find out cases so their participation in the training is as well really important and will allow them to provide initial counseling there also.

The residential in charge of the safe home will be able to establish a follow-up thought Art therapy and the improvements will be readable with an Art therapy indicator tool.

At the end of the mission Antardristi expects that:
- The staff will feel more confident in their work and they hope to be able to identify quicker the root cause of the traumas and therefore support the cases as soon as they are identified, to reduce their pain, anxiety and their unsafe feelings,
- The staff will be able to develop and organize activities related with art;
- The staff will be able to analyze children behaviour and suffering through Art therapy activities;
- The staff will be able to assess the changes and improvements of the children.

Intervention attendue du volontaire

- Theoretical skills about Art therapy, how to develop Art therapy practices, how to assess changes and establish a follow-up,

Antardristi Nepal


Antardristi was established by a group of Nepali women in 2003. They started the NGO after their visit to a police station that highlighted that the cases of sexual abuse and their victims were given very little consideration. Indeed, anytime a case of sexual abuse is registered, nobody would seem to be able to address the child or woman’s mental state. Therefore, the founders of Antardristi decided to work on sexual abuse issues by providing psychological care to children and young women, among other things.

Antardristi’s mission is to prevent sexual abuse of children and young women and promote improved mental health among minors. It facilitates community outreach activities for teachers, students and communities of Nepal. Antardristi seeks to raise awareness in schools and dispel traditional perceptions such as blaming the victim. It aims to foster social change in the area of mental health, in which the individual is often stigmatized. The organization also empowers and supports child survivors of sexual abuse through psychosocial counseling.
Antardristi also understands the need for reaching out to adult survivors of sexual abuse (SA) in order to support them in an adequate manner and prevent any further re-victimization as well as enable them to heal from the impact of sexual abuse.

The goals of Antardristi are:
- to raise awareness of, empower against and hence prevent sexual abuse,
- to provide psychological and rehabilitative intervention for families and survivors impacted by sexual abuse,
- to provide outreach and support community integration, following the process of rehabilitation.

The current activities of Antardristi are:
- Awareness programs in schools, communities in Kaski, Syangja, Myagdi, Makwanpur Chitwan and Jhapa,
- 1 day teacher training in Kaski, Syangja, Myagdi, Makwampur, Chitwan and Jhapa,
- General campaigns and street drama to raise awareness on the issue of SA in Kaski, Syangja, Myagdi, Makwampur, Chitwan and Jhapa,
- Psychosocial and rehabilitative interventions for families and children and young women impacted by sexual abuse. Antardristi has 2 centers and one transit home. The transit home in Kathmandu has been opened in 2007, one center in Pokhara opened in 2008 and one in Hetauda opened in 2010. 3 children/young women can be accommodated in Kathmandu, 15 children/young women in Pokhara and 20 children/young women in Hetauda.

By November 2014, Antardristi has rescued 15 children from different part of Nepal and has reintegrated 6 children into their home. Those children whose family reintegration is not possible were sent to Antardristi network organizations.
Antardristi is getting funds from Danida (Denmark's development cooperation) for its awareness program for 2 years. For the survivors, Antardristi is getting funds from individual donors both national and international.

Antardristi is operating its programs in 20 districts of the 75 of Nepal and received cases from 20 different districts from far Western region of Nepal to Eastern regions.

Antardristi employs 14 staff and 2 part times.

Le financement d’une mission

Pourquoi payer pour partir en mission ?

Planète Urgence a fait le choix de s’associer à de petites structures, qui n’ont pas les moyens de rémunérer leurs volontaires mais qui ont un réel besoin d’appui et prend donc le parti de soutenir des associations aux moyens très limités.  En savoir plus.


Outre l’organisation logistique, le don mission permet la mise en place d’un réel processus de montage de projet avec le partenaire local. Notre équipe s’assure ainsi du réel impact des missions pour les communautés. Découvrez ce que comprend les frais d’une mission.


Par ailleurs, il n’existe pas de financements publics ou institutionnels pour encourager le développement du volontariat international de courte durée sur le thème de la formation professionnelle ou du partage de compétences. C’est pourquoi Planète Urgence demande aux entreprises dans le cadre du Congé Solidaire® et aux volontaires pour les Missions Solidaires de participer aux frais de la mission.


Notre Principe de solidarité

Le don mission ne correspond pas au montant réel du coût de la mission choisie par le volontaire mais a été calculé sur la base du coût moyen de nos missions. Nous avons fait ce choix pour ne pas favoriser certaines missions moins coûteuses que d’autres et permettre ainsi à tous nos partenaires de recevoir de manière équitable des volontaires intéressés par leurs actions.


Sur le même principe, le financement des offres de volontariat repose lui aussi sur ce concept solidaire : pour une même mission de 2 semaines, le don mission du Congé Solidaire® est plus élevé que celui d’une Mission Solidaire. Le coût des missions résulte en effet d’un équilibre entre ces deux sources de financement permettant ainsi aux personnes ne bénéficiant pas du soutien de leur employeur de partir en mission.


Le don ne comprend pas :
– le billet d’avion (dans le cadre d’un Congé Solidaire®, certains employeurs peuvent assumer également le coût)
– les vaccins éventuels,
– le visa éventuel

Tout comme le don mission, ces frais peuvent donner lieu à une défiscalisation.

Les dons de missions, défiscalisable à 66%

Tous les dons de missions ouvrent droit 66% de défiscalisation. Les dons sont déduits du montant de l’impôt sur le revenu à hauteur de 66% pour les particuliers. Ainsi, par exemple, un don de 1 850 € après défiscalisation, reviendra à 629 € pour un particulier. . Les frais entourant la mission sont aussi éligibles à la défiscalisation. En savoir plus
