Summary

Building on our effective, community-based work of nearly three decades, ETC seeks to complete our final year working with women and their families in Dolakha District by June 2020 and thereafter to launch a new multi-year program cycle in Sunsari District. In Sunsari, we aim to serve 2,000 women, 7,500 children, hundreds of teachers, and all of their families by helping them grow greater quantities of more nutritious food and by improving the schools and the quality of education.

Challenge

In rural Nepal, marginalized families are hardest hit by food insecurity and cyclical poverty. ETC's time-tested program model will foster better educational and training opportunities, improved nutrition, and greater food security for 10,000 or more residents of numerous villages in Dolakha and Sunsari Districts, including practical and long-lasting income generation opportunities for some 2,000 rural women.

Solution

Women will learn how to grow greater quantities of more nutritious food, for their own families and to sell for profit. They will learn about crops that have not previously been known or available to them, such as mushrooms and medicinal plants. Increased household incomes will mean they can afford to keep all of their children in school, and ETC supports the schools too - via physical improvements as well as useful training for teachers who would otherwise have no such opportunities.

Long-Term Impact

ETC's sustainable agricultural development activities provide women with the skills and initial resources necessary to increase their earning potential 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, once gained, 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.
