Verein Caritas Schweiz in Brief

In weltweit rund 20 Ländern verhindert, bekämpft und lindert Caritas Schweiz Armut. Wir helfen Menschen in Not professionell, effektiv und effizient, unabhängig von ihrer religiösen und politischen Anschauung, ihrem Geschlecht oder ihrer ethnischen Zugehörigkeit.

Caritas Nepal was founded in 1990 by the Catholic Church to respond to the devastating floods and other natural disasters that occurred. Beginning as a 3-member team the agency has grown and expanded their range of services and today operates in 50 of the 75 districts in Nepal. As the social arm of Catholic Church in Nepal, Caritas Nepal aims to apply animation and sector specific participatory approaches to empower the poor, women, marginalized, and disadvantaged people to reduce poverty, secure humanitarian assistance to refugees and in times of emergency and conflict, and realize social justice and peace.

One of the main intervention areas of Caritas Nepal is to promote sustainable agriculture to enable small farmer households to realize food security and sustainable livelihoods, as about two thirds of the population is dependent on agriculture for livelihood.
