ADRA (Nepal)-Adventist Development and relief Agency International

By at February 23, 2012 | 2:54 pm | 0 Comment

“Like East Asia, South Asia has been experiencing rapid growth in recent years, but many of the 1.4 billion residents are in danger of being left behind by their own country’s rapid growth. Many communities have none of the necessary skills to let them take advantage of new business opportunities. And despite growth in some economies, millions are left still facing the same problems their parents and grandparents faced. HIV/AIDS is widespread in some areas, due in part to the prevalence of the sex trade. Women and young girls are also trafficked across borders to be sold into service as sex workers. The need for clean water and sanitation exists in many places, and natural disasters like the 2004 tsunami have devastated enormous areas.

ADRA is giving men, women, and children the ability to better themselves and advocating for the social changes it will take for even more people to be able to live full and happy lives. For more information on what ADRA is doing in South Asia, read the stories and project descriptions by clicking on the tabs above.”

ADDCN – Association of District Development Committees in Nepal

By at February 23, 2012 | 2:48 pm | 0 Comment

Establishment of democracy at the national level alone does not ensure functional, efficient and effective democracy at the grassroots such that maximum number of citizens is directly participating in governing themselves. Decentralization of the state power is the means to achieve this goal. It not only empowers local governance institutions but by so doing also brings them closer to the people, the sovereign citizens of the state.
