My name is Savitri Rajali, I live in Kathmandu where I just finished a Masters in Rural Development.
Since 2006, I have been traveling all over Nepal while on different assignment; from urban to remote locations, I’ve worked as a fixer, translator and local producer, in the office and the field. It’s a job that’s taken me to the extremes of Nepali society, one day interviewing the richest man in Kathmandu, the next staying with the country’s most deprived people in a rural area.
I work for foreign media or other professionals on a wide range of subjects and I have a strong understanding of my client’s goals. Many of my most meaningful assignments focus on women’s issues. Being Nepali, and a woman, from a humble background this is a topic I am extremely passionate about.
Throughout 2013 I was employed as personal assistant of the editor-in-chief of Nepal’s best selling newspaper “Kantipur Daily Newspaper”. Thanks to that I established a vast network of connections all over Nepal, with, for example, local journalists, police and local leaders. Being connected is paramount as most people are not listed in the Nepali Yellow Pages.
I am not a tour guide, nor am I a travel agent. My interest is to assist professionals visiting Nepal so you can get your job done without too much frustration or wasting time solving practical problems. In Nepal, running into and solving all kinds of problems is even for local people a daily routine!
