We see the connection between empowered women and climate regeneration. We also want to improve the lives of women and their families whose very existence has been a struggle. By improving their education in agricultural practice, by encouraging them to keep their families (especially their daughters in school) and by providing a hand to lift them into sustainable farming we see that these women will work collectively to solve the problems they face in their communities. Educated and resourced women have less children, stand up against child marriage, and have a respected say in the decision making in their communities. They find solutions together. They will stay on their land if they can farm it productively and regeneratively and keep their families from the flight to cities where increased carbon emissions are generated. Watch Katherine Wilkinson's Ted talk in which she makes abundantly clear the need for gender equity as we work together to stop global warming.

Vicki Farslow's involvement (page creator)

"CASD" stands for Common Action for Sustainable Development. I became involved when I visited in 2015 after the devastating earthquakes.

Use of funds

We use funds for micro loans to very poor and marginalised Nepali women. Some times these loans are used to buy seed or stock or agricultural tools. Women also collaborate to access safe drinking water for their communities.
