Within the current economic climate, ensuring sustainability can be difficult. To address these issues PA Nepal has sought to develop several sustainable development initiatives.
- In Jhapa, PA Nepal has recently purchased 13,227 m2 (26 ropanis) of farming land. This land will be used for organic farming and food production, thereby supporting the long-term needs for food at the nearby children’s home. This process will also provide a means to train women and children from the local home and community about farming techniques.
- Rather than renting buildings, PA Nepal is in the process of building specially designed facilities in Sankhu, which will house a new Junkiri school and children’s home. The ownership of property also gives the children a greater sense of security.
By increasing our level of self-sustainability, PA Nepal will have greater resources to expand its work into other areas of need.
