Success Story – Biyan Timilsina

Biyan’s journey to become the youngest public prosecutor in Nepal

There is a saying, Dream Big and Live the Life You Desire. This is how Biyan dreams. To make a dream come true, one has to find solutions to overcome the challenges that hinder you. While studying in grade 8, Biyan dreamt of becoming a lawyer. Being a member of Rotaract club, it was not difficult for her to find the right solution to make this possible. Through her networks she got the opportunity to connect with Friends of Nepal-New Jersey and the Asha Project.


She received scholarships to study at the Chakrabarti HaBi Education Academy, College of Law. Upon graduating from law school in 2018, she passed the Public Service examination. Since then, Biyan is working hard for the wellbeing of her country, and presently works as an Assistant Public Prosecutor at the District Government Attorney Office, Kathmandu. She handles various cases in Nepal, including theft, fraud, narcotics, rape, homicide, polygamy, and cybercrimes.


Along her path she received many national and international opportunities through Rotaract and Rotary clubs. One of those was to participate in a prestigious UN conference, “Harvard National Model United Nation (HNMUN)” in 2017 in Boston, USA. She represented Nepal among 3000 world delegates, an opportunity only possible with the support of the Asha project.

Asha means hope; spreading hope among the Nepali people is its purpose. In 1992, the Asha project started its journey with a small investment for education and now it provides more than 500 scholarships in a year. “Rays of hope scholarship” is one of the three pillars of this project to provide financial educational support to deserving students.

This is how Asha provided hope to the young professional Biyan. In this moment of celebrating 30 years of this project, looking back and seeing the success of this young professional in Nepal is truly inspiring. Biyan is not only a name; she is the refection of all bright students who deserve an opportunity to make their dreams come true. The support of the Asha project can make this possible.
Focusing on education, micro credit, homes and community building, the Asha project helps poor people in Nepal to improve their quality of life with support from the Friends of Nepal-NJ (FONNJ) and the Rotary club of Branchburg.
