Through Bimala’s dream to share God’s love with the disadvantaged in Kathmandu, Higher Ground Café was born in 2006, followed by a bakery and craft business. Higher Ground BakeryHigher Ground now employs over thirty people and provides employees with dignity and income for their families. These enterprises especially seek to provide opportunities for ‘at-risk’ women and youth, many of whom are economically marginalized and turn to sex-trafficking in order to support their families. Employees develop their spiritual, social and financial wisdom, in addition to learning the concrete skills of baking, coffee-making, jewelry designing, sewing, and more.

In 2010, a non-profit and non-governmental organization called Higher Ground Community Development Nepal (HGCDN) was established and is now funded through the revenue generated from the three branches of Higher Ground. HGCDN supports several programs:

  • A scholarship program to provide education to over 20 disadvantaged or orphaned children throughout Nepal.
  • A safe-home to shelter women who were rescued from dance-bars or living in unsafe living environments.
  • A counseling center to empower and restore trafficked victims whose struggle out of bondage continues.
  • A micro-enterprise loan program to provide funds for and further the dreams of small business such as pig farms, shops, tailors, and bakeries.
  • Programs and dance-bar outreaches to raise the awareness of human trafficking and to rescue trafficked girls

Higher Ground Ministries has been recognized on many occasions as an important Non-Profit NGO in Nepal.
