Recent Case Studies

Village Sustainability Project Baraha Danda.jpg

Village Sustainability Project in Baraha Danda, Tanahun

We have been working with community leaders and have supported more than 50 families who were most in need of assistance living in the poorest villages and not able to afford regular meals or education for their children.

We have provided many of these families with goats and shelters so that they could generate an income through the breeding of goats and provide food and education for their children. 

In delivering these targeted projects, we have also been able to identify and respond to specific individual family needs, including the recent installation of doors and windows to protect a family from the weather. These ‘follow-on’ projects ensure vulnerable families have their critical and basic needs addressed.

Disaster Response

During various disasters such as flash monsoons, floods, earthquakes, pandemics, and other natural events, REACH for Nepal has responded to community call-outs by providing assistance to families in distress. Forms of assistance provided in the past include:

  • Immediate cash support to families who have lost loved ones during floods in the Gandaki Province to access food and essential needs.

  • Distribution of tarps for setting up temporary shelters for families who have lost their homes.

  • Emergency food supplies provided to multiple families in villages affected by earthquakes and flash flooding

  • Provision of grocery lifelines to multiple villages for a month at a time during the recent pandemic.
