Trustees’ Annual Report for the year ended 30th of May 2018

£22,732 was expended on the two projects. The funding rebuilt a safe home for ten families and sponsored 106 girls to receive a formal education in rural villages of Nepal. The funding also created a job opportunity for fifteen people and supported other economic activities in the community. Creating job opportunities for women in the community motivates more girls to receive a formal education which breaks through the belief that women can only work in the house. It also delays teenage marriage which is good for children and mother’s health. Read the full report>> Trustees Annual Report- 2018

Even though we raised less money through fundraised compared to last year, our regular donations and donors have increased which is good news.

Trustees’ Annual Report for the year ended 30th of May 2016

The last year has been a challenging one for Nepal and Nepal Village Foundation. The devastating impact of the earthquake in April 2015 caused significant damage across the country, with a terrible loss of life. For the survivors, the fear lives on and much of the damage is yet to be repaired.

For NVF, the nationwide closure of schools had a direct impact on the girls that we support. The good news is that things are now returning to normal and we can continue to build and grow or projects.

The Project Visit Report 2015

The deadliest earthquake in Nepal caused severe damage to human life and infrastructures which will take years to recover. This has also affected our work and delayed the implementation of the mosquito net project. However, a great deal of progress has been made to improve the partnership, projects and sustainability of the organisations. I have developed and implemented a more robust framework to monitor the girls in the scheme so they can progress in their study better. I have also worked with Sunita, the project assistant and committee of partner organisation to improve the quality of reporting. Read the full report at [The project visit 2015 PDF]
