Amrit Ratna Shakya, SNASEA 2012

Name: Mr. Amrit Ratna Shakya

Venture’s Name: A.R. Fashion Design & Sewing Institute

Venture’s Location : Shree Durbar Tole, Lalitpur

Contact: 00977-9841304272, 00977-1-5526730

Problem Addressed: Being a differently-abled person himself, Mr. Shakya opened this venture in 2048 B.S. to fight the stigma and discrimination from the society towards a person like himself.

Impact: Providing training to 500 people annually among whom 25-30% on average open their own enterprise. This has also helped change the attitude of the society towards a differently abled person.

Growth Cycle: Maturation ( 10 years or above of operation)

Sustainability: Being an enterprise in a much sought after field, the filtration rate of applicants is very high.

Own Words: “I was considered to be a burden by my own parents and was never thought of having potential to be self-reliant. In order to challenge this misconception and prove that person with disabilities can also be a productive workforce, I opened this fashion institute in 2048 B.S. as a founder trainer.”
