Stories from Nepal

In Nepal we work with various community level organisations in 35 districts to increase our impact by reaching out to poorer communities. Approximately 10% of urban dwellers in Nepal are squatters and the number is set to rise.

Nepal Overview

We started working on projects in Nepal in 1997. However, eight years later we had helped only 830 families to build decent housing. So, in a strategic decision to increase our impact, we began to leverage on partnerships with other NGOs, microfinance institutions, and village lending and savings groups.

We work with various community level organisations in 35 districts to increase our impact by reaching out to poorer communities. The result is a cost-effective and environmental-friendly housing programme delivered through multiple partnerships with local institutions.

We also work on extending our impact through partnerships with the government and celebrity ambassadors. Special events such as Habitat Youth BUILD, Everest Build, and Scouts Build help to raise awareness of the need for decent housing.
