We currently work in nine of the most remote communities in Nepal – within 5 Rural Municipalities that comprises of 85 separate settlements, and nearly 40,000 residents. We commit to each of these communities for at least nine years, and our comprehensive approach provides multiple benefits to each and every person. Our long-term approach gives us enough time to adapt our strategies according to the needs of each community, thus deepening our impacts.

The sum of our impact is greater than the parts. The projects we implement range from the formation and training of Parent Teacher Associations at local schools, to medicinal plant farming, construction of thousands of toilets. All of our projects are innovative and exhibit extremely high levels of local contribution. By addressing the complex needs of communities, all of our projects compliment one another as part of a system of change that leads to an increase in unnati – or overall well-being.
