J891 Nepal Community Transformation Project

Nepal, Indian Subcontinent

The Situation

Nepal is ranked among the poorest countries in the world. The effects of the 2015 earthquake are still felt in many parts of the country and the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted communities. Average education levels remain low, with the national mean years of schooling at 4.9 years. Skills and vocational training are needed to empower individuals and communities in income generation.

This project aims to relieve poverty and empower local communities to impact their lifestyle, health, education and future prospects in general.

The Objectives

  1. To address the above development needs by equipping local leaders with the skills and knowledge to instigate change in their own community. Training will cover personal/leadership development, community development and business development.
  2. To improve health through the provision of safe, clean water and hygiene and sanitation education.
