What We Do
Development Nepal has facilitated community-led work in the Sunsari district of Nepal for over 15 years. Driven by a mission to alleviate poverty, our goal is to give the poorest communities and individuals improved access to essential education and resources through Programme Ujyalo Bhabisya (‘A Brighter Future’).
Since 2015, an increased focus on micro-finance has been a direct response to what communities tell us they value, together with consideration of how Development Nepal can have greatest impact over the longer term. Through the establishment of a strong and successful financial co-operative, access to basic financial services has also become possible for the poorest people of Sunsari.
By investing efforts into scaling the Co-operative’s sustainable operation, it will be possible to support quality financial inclusion, micro-business support for the poorest, and the traditional activities of Programme Ujyalo Bhabisya- whether it be delivery of literacy and numeracy classes, women’s health training, kitchen garden training, irrigation pumps, micro-finance or community buildings.
