Nazarene Compassionate Ministries Canada is supporting Nazarene Compassionate Ministries Nepal with a three-year agriculture and livelihood project in Phidm municipality, Pachthar.
Many farmers in this region struggle to produce enough food year-round. Their families normally cope by having family members migrate in search of work. However, restrictions on movement due to the pandemic is making this coping mechanism more difficult. The result is growing numbers of families facing hunger.
This project is responding by providing agricultural trainings to communities, as well as trainings in other ways of earning an income. It is also encouraging the inclusion of women in these opportunities.
Over the three years, the project aims to reach 1,308 households (about 6,200 people).
