What We Do
Development Nepal works with the poorest individuals and communities in the Sunsari district of Nepal. Our aim is to help people in Sunsari access essential resources and opportunities, and to give them greater resilience and independence. We do this through a programme called Ujyalo Bhabisya (meaning ‘A Brighter Future’) which since 2015 increasingly focuses on micro-finance and livelihoods support through our Ujyalo Bhabisya Co-operative. Investing our time and resources into enabling the Ujyalo Bhabisya Co-operative to become self-sufficient, should generate funds in a sustainable manner for the traditional Programme Ujyalo Bhabisya activities that include primary education and maternal child-health work.
