Challenge

Due to loss of houses, people are obliged to refuge in tents & communal shelters. There is lack of basic facilities to sustain life, due to which people are suffering. There is high probability of spreading of water borne diseases. Due to damage of school buildings and water sanitation facilities, children are facing difficulty in their studies. In this vulnerable situation, human traffickers have become active and have easily influenced specially women, girls and children.

Solution

ECCA as a leading organization in community development, working at ground level, holds capacity to mobilize youths as volunteers in community to implement the recovery works. In coordination with other local organizations, the fund will exclusively support recovery, rehabilitation and rebuilding efforts in Nepal.

Long-Term Impact

Responding towards the need of the affected people and the school, we will continue our work towards construction of proper shelter, promoting safe drinking water campaign, providing solar power lights, orientations, counseling and legal advice, and will support to uplift the quality of life of the affected people through supporting their livelihood.
