Nepal is reeling from the immediate effects of the earthquake that hit the country on 25th April 2015. As the immediate emergency response gets underway and in the reconstruction that follows, it will be crucial for local needs and voices to be taken into consideration and that grassroots groups are part of efforts to rebuild, strengthen, and expand sustainable development in Nepal’s rural areas.
Tewa, Nepal Women’s Fund, has been working with grassroots groups across Nepal for the past 20 years and – uniquely in that country – encouraging Nepali citizens to support its work by building up a network of 3000 local donors. As a long-term grant partner of Tewa, the Global Fund for Community Foundations has started a campaign on justgiving.com to garner support for Tewa in the wake of the earthquake. Any donations made to support Tewa’s work will be transferred directly to them. (Tewa’s staff are all safe, although there is some damage to their offices).
