Help Provide Self-Sufficiency & Economic Stability to Disadvantaged Families in Nepal
Agriculture is the main occupation of rural communities in Nepal, and an earthquake in 2015 devastated the farming and rural agro-industries including handicrafts, garments, herbs and medicinal products, dairy and meat products, fruits, and food processing. More than international aid, Nepal farmers and families want to earn a living and grow the food they need as they rebuild from within.
GreaterGood.org partners with Asta Ja to provide families in Nepal with seeds and proper education to have the opportunity to be self-sufficient and help alleviate the poverty and hunger in the Sindhupalchowk district of Nepal.
You can help. Just $35.62 helps one household in Nepal receive the seeds and training costs involved with the planting, growing and maintaining of the crops. Please help us reach our goal of providing this opportunity to 300 families.
Asta Ja's mission is community capacity-building for sustainable rural agro-industrial development and natural resources conservation throughout Nepal. Outcomes include income generation for rural communities to alleviate poverty, improved environmental quality, and socio-economic transformation of rural Nepal. They are achieving their mission by working from grassroots through ministerial levels, guiding collaborative agricultural and natural resources research and development among governmental and non-governmental organizations, charity organizations, academic institutions, private sector businesses, INGOs, individuals, and other stakeholders.
