Sokhi Family

We welcome Sean Sokhi to the role of Community Programs Director with INF Nepal. Having been in the role for one month, Sean is excited to join INF Nepal’s community teams, to work alongside them and to come alongside the people and communities they serve.

Sean and his wife, Nikita, have two children – an adult daughter, Anushka, and an infant son, Bryan, who brings a lot of new joy into their lives. Sean has already arrived in Pokhara, with Anita and Bryan to follow, moving to Nepal from their home in India.

For Sean and Nikita, this move comes in response to prayerful discernment of God’s calling in their lives.

“Just as Jesus called Bartimaeus, and treated him – a beggar – with respect and honour, so I know that Jesus calls me to follow him and walk alongside poor and vulnerable people.”

Both Sean and Nikita have rich experience in community work. Nikita has Masters degrees – in Social Work, and Counselling & Psychotherapy.

Sean has a Masters in Medical and Psychiatric Social Work from Karve Institute of Social Service, Pune, Maharastra, India and over 25 years of experience in program management, design and evaluation in international development agencies. In his career he has focused on HIV/AIDS work and anti-human trafficking, serving with organisations such as International Justice Mission, World Vision International and Justice Ventures International. 

In his last assignment, Sean was South Asia Programs Director at JVI. He led the national and international programs on anti-human trafficking interventions, advocacy, and holistic casework in India and Nepal.

With his experience in designing, implementing, managing and evaluating projects and teams, as well as organisational development, we are excited for the work Sean will do to develop the capacity and quality of INF Nepal’s community health and development programs. 

As Sean begins his role, he is eager to quickly develop relationships of love and trust. “It is only when we have relationships of trust that we can do anything for the community.”
