Sustainable Community Farming Project  - Seeds for Resilience

  • Food insecurity has been one of the major repercussions of the earthquake in Nepal.
  • Our sustainable community farming projects in Nuwakot and outskirts of Kathmandu valley are supporting women to address food security issues in their local communities.
  • We are committed to supporting 15 greenhouses that will support 1800 households, producing 45 tons of produce per year impacting more than 9000 individuals.
  • These projects are providing leadership trainings to women and assisting them in the construction of greenhouse nurseries.
  • The projects provide: 17 varieties of non-GMO seeds that can be cultivated during monsoon and post monsoon seasons; micro-organism-enriched compost (Trichocompost) for healthy seedings; on-site training to farmers by seed farming experts on seedling production, integrated pest management, crop management and post-harvest handling.

Tablet for Resilience

Two years after the earthquake, children in many areas still do not have a safe space to learn. Further, the earthquake has taken an emotional toll among children in Nepal. The purpose of the project therefore, is to provide a technology-based solution targeted to children, through a tablet project "Tablet for Resilience", in two earthquake affected schools in Nuwakot district in Nepal.

The goals of the project are to:

  1. Reduce the mental health burden of the earthquake among children
  2. Positively influence their cognitive and social development through touchscreen solution
  3. Promote their ability to learn more efficiently in the classroom. Potential impact of this project will also have ripple effects among school teachers, parents, and the entire community.

The proposed project is targeted to reach approximately 300 children and 500 families in Nuwakot.

Since technology-based solutions have been showing a tremendous potential value to reduce mental health burden, we believe schools to be an ideal setting to implement intervention targeted to address trauma among children. The proposed school-based technological intervention will support trauma-related psychological problems among children and positively impact their ability to learn in the classroom. After the successful completion of this two-year pilot project, we hope to replicate it to other schools in Nuwakot and Sindhupalchowk districts.
