Kathmandu’s Narconon® rehabilitation center produces drug-free lives, but they have also reached out to over seven million people through TV, radio and newspapers. Their staff and students have given live drug ed talks to more than 500,000 persons in schools, the armed forces, and other venues. They held the first-ever 5,000 person anti-drug march through the new main street of Kathmandu, ending with a huge rally.
When he was Senior Supt for the Chief of Police for Kathmandu, Basanta Raj Kunwar learned about Narconon methods. He asked for our help to bring the program to Nepal. His Pratigya Foundation staff trained at a center in Melbourne and others were interned at home in Nepal. Their drug rehabilitation center has since saved hundreds of lives and is constructing new facilities in the hills outside Kathmandu.
