Summary

Through our time-tested integrated community development model of nearly three decades, ETC will wrap up our work with women and their families in Dolakha District and then launch a new program cycle in Sunsari District. We will help families learn to grow more nutritious food, empower women to gain skills and status, and improve the quality of education for thousands of students and their teachers.

Challenge

In rural Nepal, marginalized families are hardest hit by food insecurity and cyclical poverty. The pandemic has made existing problems worse for the most socioeconomically marginalized and vulnerable people.

Solution

We intend to begin a full program model as soon as public health considerations make it possible. (For more information about our three-pronged approach, please visit our website, www.etc-nepal.org.) In the meantime, we will address some of the most pressing problems that are also possible to address without compromising the safety of our staff or the people we serve - notably, public health resource/training provision, and food security/nutrition.

Long-Term Impact

(referring to ETC's normal work) Our agricultural development activities provide women with the skills and resources necessary to increase their earnings and improve their own and their families' well-being, both immediately and indefinitely. Teacher training helps rural teachers do their important jobs better. These skills do not wear out or expire. The women also serve as excellent role models of self-sufficiency and determination for their daughters and other girls in their lives.
