With great pleasure I would like to welcome you to the latest issue of CECI Nepal’s Newsletter ‘REFLECT’. In this issue you will get a glimpse of our major activities carried out from September to December 2016. This issue also highlights the work on governance that CECI has undertaken in its development projects.
During this period, we continued ongoing projects: providing technical assistance to the Skills Development Project (SDP) and the two volunteer programs, UNITERRA and AVID. Multi Donor Trust Fund/Program for accountability in Nepal (MDTF/PRAN2) was successfully completed. Besides implementing regular projects, we conducted trainings, seminars and meetings on various topics. We also welcomed new volunteers and bid farewel to those who completed their mandates in Nepal. We are committed further towards economic development, agriculture and livelihoods, disaster risk reduction (DRR), capacity building, 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. I would also like to offer sincere thanks to CECI Nepal staff and volunteers for their support in preparing this newsletter.
Finally, I would like to thank Ms. Mallika Bhattarai, Communication Officer, for her hard work in bringing out this newsletter. We look forward to your comments and suggestions for further improvement.
Keshava Koirala, Country Representative
