Most of the working population in Nepal relies on agriculture for their living, and the national economy depends on remittances and tourism income. The earthquake in 2015, the recent COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns adversely affected the livelihood of vulnerable households. India borders the southern border of Nepal. People from the two places come and go freely. Criminals take advantage of the convenience of crossing the border to traffic people illegally.
Since 2006, we have served people experiencing poverty in Nepal by building water supply and sanitation facilities, increasing farmland production, and encouraging farmers to save and operate small businesses to increase family income. We also set up a resource centre in a community in the central-southern part of Nepal to train local technicians, who provide technical and sales support to over 200 farmers in the community. In combating human trafficking, we helped the Adult Entertainment Sector(AES) worker to fight for a safe environment and reason right in the workplace. Moreover, we provide vocational training for AES workers who want to leave the sector. Also, we establish two community support centres to help former AES workers to integrate into the community and reduce the trafficking risk for the women in the community. In addition, we provided integral mission training to 50 Nepalese churches and encouraged them to set an example by personally taking part in it and serving the community.
