Our Team

Faces behind Gulabi Sambad Gulabi Sambad is spearheaded by two passionate individuals dedicated to the fields of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) and child rights. Sabita Acharya and Karuna Devkota, the Co-Founders and Content Creators of Gulabi Sambad initiated this project on November 14, 2020, and have been working voluntarily ever since. Previously, they served as program producers, scriptwriters, editors, and hosts for the popular youth radio program “Saathi Sanga Manka Kura”,which airs on Nepal’s national radio.

Amid the challenging circumstances of the first phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, numerous teenagers encountered various issues related to sexual, reproductive, and mental health.
Additionally, instances of cybercrime, such as online bullying, harassment, and violence, were on the rise. The escalating number of such cases motivated Sabita and Karuna to launch a creative initiative aimed at fostering healthy discussions on topics related to SRHR and Mental Health. After resigning from their positions as a senior program officer (Sabita) and program associate (Karuna)
at Saathi Sanga Manka Kura, they officially established the podcast series, Gulabi Sambad. They volunteer their time and expertise to produce programs based on personal experiences and efforts.

Furthermore, both Acharya and Devkota have accumulated over a decade of effective work in the
communications and mass media sector. Acharya has earned a master’s degree in Gender Studies and a bachelor’s degree in Law, while Devkota has attained a master’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communication. They have made substantial contributions through writing and verbal advocacy on issues related to SRHR issues, demonstrating a long-standing commitment to these critical topics
