“Originally from Nawalparasi, Nepal, I later moved to Kathmandu to pursue my studies. After completing my Master’s degree in Education, I am currently training in psychosocial counselling. I am curious, creative and determined, and I like to get involved in meaningful causes. I enjoy being able to help people who suffer from psychosocial problems by giving them the keys to feel better.”  Sushila Nepal

What does your daily work consist of?

Currently, I work as a social worker for the association Child Nepal, partner of Planète Enfants & Développement. I train groups of parents in community schools and guide them on health issues, the role of parents in education, the importance of care and development of young children… I interact with school directors, facilitators, teachers to make schools more welcoming. Finally, I try to make the most vulnerable people aware of the Maternelle de l’Espoir: I go to meet people working in the entertainment sector to make them aware of our services

Why did you choose this job? What motivates you on a daily basis?

Social workers are trusted professionals who can support, guide and help families and communities in need. For me, it is above all a passion to help others and to have a positive impact on their well-being. Being a social worker and a psychosocial counsellor at the same time, I am constantly learning from others.

Listening is one of the most important qualities to have in these jobs, because we must first know who we are talking to before giving advice,. Finally, what motivates me every day is the positive feedback from the people I have helped, it is a bit like the consecration of my job.

How does the partnership with Planète Enfants & Développement work?

It is a mutual support that we bring to each other. I have learned a lot from PE&D’s expertise in parenting education, family development methodology and the development of working tools. I am very satisfied and grateful for this partnership.
