Model Village/Village Adoption

The model village program (Namuna Gaau) is a project designed for sustainable development in villages across Nepal. The work is aligned with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Since then, they have focused on areas in which to begin a series of changes that start with basic needs and then leads to a state of true empowerment. Their vision is to teach villagers the skills they need to live in communities that are prosperous and self-reliant. These are places where people are healthy and educated and where they lead lives of dignity in a clean, pollution- free environment. Such self-reliance will lead to vibrant cultures rooted in Nepal’s age-old traditional wisdom. Because villagers are the providers of most of the nation’s food supply, these steps can lead to a sense of community and gratitude throughout the entire country. The village will develop organic modern regenerative agriculture, livestock and aqua farming, horticulture, income generation programs, agriculture-based industries, food security and help in reduction of dependency in other nations. Along with agricultural development, education, health, sanitation, ecological infrastructures, skill development, livelihood are other key focus areas for development.
