Situation

Although the international media has turned its focus elsewhere, the effect of April's earthquake on Nepal’s poorest communities has the potential to be equally as devastating as the original event. As winter sets in, disadvantaged families in dozens of remote rural villages still lack shelter and clean water. The destruction of land and livestock means that many now have no way to earn a living. Dozens of schools remain closed, and women and girls are more vulnerable than ever to abuse.

Solution

Pragya has played a crucial role in bringing emergency relief to the most isolated, impoverished families in rural Nepal following the earthquake. Building on our close links with these marginalised communities, we are now working to build permanent accommodation, improve access to safe water, re-open primary schools and protect vulnerable women from the threat of gender-based violence, particularly trafficking.
