Peace Rehabilitation Center was founded by Shanta Sapkota. She was born in the town of Gorkha, Nepal. Her father brokered an arranged marriage for her at the age of twelve, in order to get her out of the house. She was neglected in her new household and suffered from much physical and mental affliction. Constantly in search of peace and love, she felt like an orphan. When in her Bible she read, “I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you” (John 14:18), she became aware of God’s promise for her and committed her life to serving Him.
    At age twenty-five Shanta left home and family in Gorkha and made her way to Kathmandu, where she found work and began a new life.
She also joined classes at a mission where she learned much about love, care, and the need for service to victims of sex trafficking. Shanta felt compelled to join in these efforts and immediately decided to commit herself to the care of a former sex worker who was dying of AIDS. She shared her decision with friends, who agreed to support her efforts. Overwhelmed by the task before her, she was encouraged by Jesus’ words in John 15:16: “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.” PRC’s foundational work and continuing ministry give evidence to the truth of this verse. Shanta chose the name Peace
Rehabilitation Center because in her time of abandonment and sorrow as a young woman, God’s peace gave her hope and new life. From her own experience, she knows the importance of love and peace in the lives of the many girls who call her mother. Shanta says with confidence, “Although I will not always be here, the work and mission of PRC will never die because it is not my work, but the Lord’s.”
