SABAH Nepal has been designing and implementing livelihood recovery and promotion programmes in the earthquake affected communities by carrying out an array of interventions to assist women to convert available assets into a sustainable and resilient means of earning a living. The programs move beyond the restoration of assets and pre-disaster livelihood strategies. Attempts have been made to take advantage of the “window of opportunity”, created after the disaster to strengthen livelihood strategies and increase sustainable income-generating opportunities enhancing people’s resilience to future disasters.


SABAH Nepal has constructed Community Facilitation Centre (CFC) building in Byasi, Bhaktapur, Nala and Khawa in Kavre. The members of the local community who were left bereft after the earthquake have started to use these buildings as a hub to conduct various activities such as trainings, meetings and community gatherings. Various livelihood activities have been carried out from these centres. The CFC also act as a functional link in the value chain where production, order distribution, collection activities will be carried out. In the coming days, SABAH Nepal plans to further train women and facilitate market access of the products they make. SABAH will guide value chain activities designed to strengthen farm-to-market links, encourage investment, improve access inputs to improve economic situation and increase resilience of the community.
