Rural Society Nepal

Objectives
To help children from poor remote villages to go to school. The aim is to cover all education expenses for the children.
Rural Society also helps to improve school infrastructure (including sanitary facilities and pure drinking water).
It aims at increasing economic empowerment through a training programme for farmers to teach them modern skills in agriculture.
People of Village Development Committees (VDCs) are trained with the aim of providing an agricultural programme to raise the income of farmers so that their basic needs can be fulfilled more easily, so that they can live an independent life in their localities and are able to send their children to school.

Project locations

  • remote areas (the project also aims at reaching the inhabitants of disadvantaged minority communities)
  • rural areas with poor development infrastructures.

Project details
The project aims at improving the education infrastructures and promote modern skills in agricultural occupation. It also targets women, dalits and people with a disability (PwDs). Different training and awareness programmes deal with the development of income generation sources and employment, allowing the improvement of the farmers’ self-sufficiency.
Economic activities in the local communities need to be increased. People need also to be made more aware of unnecessary expenses.
Such programmes increase the farmers’ income and reduce the number of children not going to school because now they are employed in agriculture.
Expectations
The project contributes towards improving education opportunities for children, upgrading school infrastructure, enhancing skills and awareness of the remote villagers (including women, dalits and people with a disability) that are involved in agriculture.
This leads to the economic and conceptual empowerment of villagers, which in turn inspires them to take part in different social activities.
The project results in an increase in income and a decrease in the illiteracy rate among disadvantaged people. Poverty can be reduced, conflicts made less frequent and peace more stable.
The purchasing power of the farmers can be raised as the programme teaches them how to market their own products or how to start their own business.
The programme also aims at women, dalits and people with disability (PwDs). They are shown how to better use resources to generate income and how to better control expenses.
More efficiency in farming and in the use of resources (including money) allows the farmers to send their children to school and to pay for school material. More skills and local (self-)employment opportunities reduce the need for youths to leave the villages or even the country to look for a job.
