Baliyo Ghar (Strong House) aims to deliver the skills needed to help Nepal build back safer
The April 25, 2015 earthquake and its aftershocks destroyed or significantly damaged over 755,000 homes in Nepal. These were mostly traditional stone-mud and brick-mud structures built and occupied by the rural poor. The majority of these houses were non-engineered, constructed instead by home owners and with little consideration of seismic risks or building codes.
The U.S. Agency for International Development today shared the final results of its cutting-edge integrated health and nutrition program for Nepal. The five year, $57 Million “Suaahara” project (2011-2016), implemented by a consortium of organizations managed by Save the Children, benefitted more than 2.4 million Nepalis in 41 districts. Over the life of the project, Suaahara steadily improved the nutrition and health practices of socially excluded and marginalized groups, particularly pregnant women and children under 2.
USAID's three-year, $4 million Business Literacy Project, is part of the U.S. Government’s Feed the Future Initiative in Nepal.
USAID’s Policy Reform Initiative Project supports the Government of Nepal to achieve inclusive economic growth in the agriculture sector to enhance and improve food security.
