We are pleased to present you the latest issue of CECI Nepal’s News- letter ‘REFLECT’. In this issue you will get a glimpse of our major activi- ties carried out between May and August 2019.
During this period, we carried out various activities under Sustainable Use of Technology for Public Sector Accountability in Nepal SUSASAN, funded by the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada (GAC) and mobilized Australian and Canadian volunteers under two volunteer cooperation programs: Uniterra, funded by the Government of Canada through GAC and Australian Volunteer Program (AVP) funded by the Australian Government. CECI successfully completed Livelihood Promotion of Earthquake Affected Population in Nepal — PUNARNIRMAN Project funded by the Canada Government through GAC. The project is successful in achieving the targets of improving sustainable livelihood of the rural population in three districts who were badly affected by the mega earthquakes of 2015.
Besides implementing regular projects, we conducted trainings, semi- nars and meetings on various topics. We also welcomed new volunteers and bade farewell to those who completed their mandates in Nepal. We are committed further towards economic development, agriculture and livelihood, disaster risk reduction (DRR), capacity build- ing of CBOs, governance and gender equality and social inclusion through our various projects.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our partners, including government agencies, donors and civil society organizations, without their support we would not be able to pursue our mission.
Finally, I would also like to offer sincere thanks to the CECI Nepal staff and volunteers for their support in preparing this newsletter.
