By the end of 2017, more than 15.000 households and 760 Community Based Organisations (CBOs) have been benefited from our community development work. In other words, 90.000 people are direct beneficiaries.
EWS Nepal achieved mobilization and organization of local communities. After being involved in EWS Nepal’s projects for some time, local groups form their own network organization, which works as a body for managing their future development activities. These network-organizations are active and independent and thus prove that local development is possible with minimum external input and through capacity building of locals.
examples for CBO formation:
- Kakani gauriban Ariculture is a network-organisation of 23 groups. The approximately 665 members of this network are quite active in several fields like saving and credit, small farmer support and district level stakeholder programs. Moreover they were able to acquire new partner-projects and to do fund-raising on their own.
