About Us

The Story Kitchen (TSK) is driven by the passionate belief that upholding the stories of women can unravel systems of gender oppression and patriarchy that continue to exist in Nepal. The domination of stories from men’s  perspectives leaves women out of the history of Nepal and fails to recognize the extent to which women are currently contributing and have always contributed to the development of the country. TSK enhances women’s participation and representation in media using a from-the-ground-up approach: meeting women locally and sharing  their stories nationally. We invite women of different castes, ages, communities, cultures and languages to experience the powerful transformation of storytelling and narrative journalism.

Our Work

Armed Conflict, Violence Against Women and Peacebuilding

The Story Kitchen’s two current projects, Sharing and Amplifying Her Allegorical Stories (SAHAS) for Justice and Voices for Justice (VfJ) use storytelling to encourage survivors of gender-based violence during the decade-long armed conflict between the Nepalese government and the CPN Maoists to feel safe enough to break their silence, come together to heal, and seek transitional justice. These projects are made possible with the funding support of the United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women and the Governance Facility.TSK is implementing the SAHAS project in partnership with National Alliance of Women Human Rights Defenders in Nepal.
