Philosophy

We believe the birthplace of an individual is not a choice, and no one has the right to discriminate based on this.  'Miteri' is an indigenous practice of Nepal which embraces mutual love and respect that goes beyond blood and kinship regardless of caste, class, region, religion, or politics. 'Miteri' connects diverse communities for work, and for equal contributions toward peace and justice.  

Vision

We are a young, committed, dynamic, enthusiastic, and multi-disciplined group of people seeking peace, prosperity, and a just society for Nepal and for those beyond her borders.
