OVERVIEW

 

Nepal is the newest member of the Outreach family, boasting a staff of youthful, energetic, highly educated development professionals. Over the next year, we’ll have more and more encouraging numbers to share as work continues lifting people out of chronic poverty.

NEPAL

A landlocked country with a swirling diversity of ethnic backgrounds, languages, and religions, Nepal’s geography ranges from plains to literally the tallest point in the world. Economically, Nepal ranks as the 28th poorest country in Asia, and an estimated 78.4% of the population aged 15 and above are unemployed. A ruinous earthquake and its aftershocks in April, 2015 killed and injured thousands, in addition to destroying countless homes, buildings, and roads. The country’s population remains committed to rebuilding and strengthening its infrastructure, but underlying issues of chronic poverty persist as funding and support are routed elsewhere.

Initial stages of Outreach International’s work in Nepal focus on three communities’ efforts to explore new, sustainable methods of agriculture, improve access to healthcare and education, and rebuild components of infrastructure that assist in increasing levels of income.
