After many years of bloodstained rebellion and civil war Nepal is slowly regaining footing. But the country is now facing big challenges.
Almost half of the population of Nepal lives below the poverty line, while equality between men and women are massive. The reason is lack of education – only every fifth woman in Nepal is able to read and write, while every other man has reading and writing skills.
Besides that, Nepal is badly hit by the climate changes, which is causing severe downpours and landslides.
CARE Danmark works to grant strength to human rights, conflict enhances democracy and god government policy.
CARE Danmark in Nepal
CARE Danmark is working to improve living conditions of casteless, poor farmers and women. Besides that, CARE is trying to reduce poverty and give poor people a louder voice in society. CARE gives advices on how to take advances of nature’s resources, and gives financial support to loan projects.
Most projects also give strength to local authorities, which make it easier to make legislation on better decentralisation and local participatory democracy.
