The Problem

In two remote regions of the Humla District in Nepal, the local communities – Parangtol and Melchaur – have had to deal with severe hardships over the past eight years, including a massive earthquake, regional flooding, and two years of the pandemic. Nearly two hundred people died of Covid taking away the breadwinners and leaving many families in severe hardship. Those working in farming were severely affected by the lockdown and are still struggling to return to normalcy. For local families already living in poverty and dependent on tourism or migrant workers whose jobs abroad have been lost, the effects have been devastating.

The Solution

We will be funding the construction of 15 greenhouses that will be built for these vulnerable families. Through a training program, they will be provided with the knowledge and skills to successfully grow a wide variety of vegetables. This will allow them to become more self-sufficient and less dependent on expensive, imported food.
