$10 donated
Given by 1 generous donor in one year

The far reaching socio-economic impacts of COVID-19 on rural Nepali communities place already vulnerable families at greater risk.


First Steps Himalaya's Community Resilience Programme will build community resilience in the rapidly changing situation of rural Nepal as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The project will provide awareness on health and hygiene practices, the dangers of child/ women trafficking and alcohol abuse, domestic/family violence and promote sustainable agricultural as well as the importance of environmental protection.

Newly formed Community Development Clubs will be the vehicle for change. Community animators will be selected from these clubs to mobilise the community through a number of local level initiatives to bring about positive behavioural changes. Larger scale community events will be organised that attract members of all ages to attend, covering the key focus areas of the project. Prior to each event, community animators will promote it widely within their community to ensure maximum participation
