Our Projects

We’re working with communities to improve
nutrition in Nepal

We work directly with communities affected by malnutrition in districts across Nepal. At the heart of each project is a desire to see Nepalis gaining and using knowledge to improve the health and wellbeing of themselves, their families and their communities.

How we work —

Partnering with organisations and local groups, NPCS selects areas of need and works with the community for several years to create awareness, effectively improve nutrition and track along with vulnerable people as their wellbeing improves. 

Some of our activities include:

  • Explaining basic concepts of food, nutrition and a balanced diet
  • Teaching people how to cook and prepare easily available local foods
  • Explaining common nutrition problems such as protein-energy malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies, and how to cure these
  • Specialised counselling and regular follow ups for pregnant women and new mothers 
  • Providing training for local women’s and community groups
  • Regular growth monitoring for under-5 children and follow ups with malnourished kids

For each project, we conduct surveys before and after to measure the results of our work. We also empower local nutrition volunteers to provide support to the community after the project has finished.

NPCS has been effective at winning the trust of both community leadership who encourage and support mothers to participate, and Government Health Post staff who support NPCS growth monitoring activities and take responsibility for childhood immunizations and primary health care needs
