Work context

ACF’s intervention in Nepal started in 2005 with a focus on addressing the needs of the conflict affected population in the Karnali region. Further surveys in the country highlighted alarming undernutrition rates in Nepal. In response, ACF initiated a CMAM programme in Saptari District in 2012 with a District wide approach. The 2015 Earthquake in Nepal led to scaling up our work in the country to 5 of the 14 most affected Districts. 

 Currently our work is spread across 3 districts across 3 provinces. Our capital office is located in Kathmandu and have two field offices in Nuwakot (Bidur) and Nawalparasi (Ramgram). In Nuwakot and Rasuwa Districts in province 3, our primary work is on of WASH facilities for the Earthquake survivors. In the District of Nawalparasi that spreads across provinces 4 and 5, we have an IMAM programme to address the causes and consequences of Hunger by initiating a district wide response at the community and health facilities level. However, in order to address the root cause of malnutrition, we also have initiated an integrated Food Security and Livelihood programmes and plan to initiate work WASH in some specific pockets of the district where cases of acute malnutrition are concentrated.
