Share and Care Nepal (SCN) proposes an emergency relief assistance project to address the critical shelter needs of families whose homes were destroyed in the two earthquakes that struck Nepal in April and May 2015. SCN helped communities begin to recover their livelihoods and socio-economic security that were degraded in the quakes, through the provision of inputs, training, and support.
After discussions with the local government authorities, relief and recovery activities focused on two VDCs of Nuwakot District; Chhap and Talakhu, and two VDCs of neighboring Sindhupalchok District; Haibung and Kunchok. The assistance was intended to help meet critical needs and enable households and communities to begin rebuilding their lives.
Share and Care Nepal (SCN) proposes HARP Phase III “Back-Up For Better Livelihood Program” to enhance the knowledge, skills, and income of poor and vulnerable families affected by the earthquake through livelihood opportunities. This program supported 341 families with an opportunity for a livelihood and commercialize livestock i.e. goat, cow/buffalo, and agriculture productions. Further, 340 people were trained on the technical and managerial aspects of their entrepreneurship.
HARP III was implemented in 8 VDCs (Mahakali, Chaap, Likhu, Talakhu, Sikre, Samundradevi, Thanapati, and Sunakhani) of Nuwakot district and commence on 17th of July, 2016.
