WHAT WE DO IN NEPAL
We work with smallholder farmers to build their resilience to climate change, improving their productivity and connectivity to markets, facilitating technology transfers, and exploring how digitalisation can work for small landholders.
We provide youth with vocational training and certification, increasing their employability.
We also support entrepreneurs to establish profitable ventures through business development services, linking them to markets, improving their access to finance, and increasing their access to existing resources at local governments.
Gender and inclusivity are prioritised across all our programmes.
We work with our partners to provide life-saving support in the aftermath of disasters such as floods, landslides, wildfires, and earthquakes.
Our expertise lies in the early phase after a disaster, where we use our knowledge of building sustainable livelihoods and tailor that to livelihood recovery.
Our strong base of partnerships and collaboration with partners, local government and the private sector allowed us to mobilise coordinated response across six districts providing life-saving assistance and emergency medical supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic.
WHERE WE WORK IN NEPAL
We have programmes in sustainable livelihoods in Kavre, Sindhupalchowk, Jumla, Bajhang, Lamjung, and East Rukum districts. Our humanitarian assistance projects are located in Dadeldhura, Dang, Banke and Bardia districts.
