Summary

We will train 100 Nepali youth to become rapid response integrity builders. In 5 of the worst affected earthquake districts, these young people will access information on the relief effort to understand who is entitled to what and raise community awareness so they know how to access these vital services. With our oversight, the young people will be able to ensure that those most in need will receive the homes, healthcare and education they deserve and are entitled to.

Challenge

In crisis situations like Nepal post-earthquake, vast amounts of money are often routed through unmonitored channels. Donors pledged over $3bn towards the reconstruction effort and already local communities are worried about how much of this money will be wasted. Poor-management can mean the difference between life and death for people trying to rebuild their lives. Oversight is needed to help local people access the aid and rebuild lives. This can take months if not years after an earthquake.

Solution

To ensure money is routed effectively, Integrity Action will work with Nepali youth, training them on how and when the humanitarian relief effort will be spent so that they can help local people access it for effective use. Based on our track record, introducing an oversight mechanism like these youth monitors will increase the accountability of the aid to ensure those worst affected by the earthquake are able to understand what they are entitled to and can access vital basic services.

Long-Term Impact

We will train 100 youth monitors that will help build trust, accountability and effectiveness into Nepal's post-earthquake reconstruction, thereby ensuring the aid money goes where it should. This training will also equip these young people with skills that help them find employment, engage with their governments and improve their communities.
