About Project

This one-year program ending in 2014 in the Achham District focused on working with the community organizations in 3 VDCs. DWO worked in partnership with the Poverty Alleviation Fund run by the Government of Nepal. The project focused on improving access to financial support for income generation and infrastructure development, in particular for Dalits, women, and other marginalized groups. Two people were hired for the program, one program coordinator and one mobilization coordinator. The program saw funds mobilized for 18 community organizations totalling more than 14,000,000 Nepali Rupees (approximately USD 140,000) and 28 community organizations incurred savings of 820,000 Rupees (approximately USD 8,200). The communities have prepared preliminary designs for 3 irrigation projects. Finally, with additional access to funds, the community organizations were able to assist entrepreneurs in starting small businesses farming goats and buffalo, and tailoring. In total, the project has reached 3,288 beneficiaries including 1,654 women and 1,634 men, and 2,139 of whom are Dalit individuals.
