Alumni Ambassador Nepal

I am currently running an NGO called Helambu Education and Livelihood Project (HELP) improving the quality of education of community based government schools in some of the rural villages of Sindupalchowk district in Nepal.

In doing these work, I have been concentrating on how to better engage local communities so that they become more capable of bringing their local state authorities closer to them for the further support they need. Inspired by Chambers “Putting the Last First” concept, I have been searching schools and communities that are least supported by the state and seeking ways to involve the most backward group in those communities to the forefront of local decision making arenas.
