Description:

The project will take place in a small village in Kathmandu district, 7 km from Thamel, the center of Kathmandu. Most local people live off agriculture. The issue is with the chemicals that are used in agriculture and their harmful effect on public health. Our goal is to provide access to organic agriculture through involvement of the local community.
In Nepalese villages, men are generally the breadwinners, and women often depend on their husbands for money for groceries. If they have a vegetable garden on a small plot, the family could work together to provide healthy food for everyone.

From April to August, volunteers will be involved in agriculture, working in a nursery to grow new and improved varieties of vegetables and crops. We will teach the local population how to plant and grow healthy produce. We will also provide a variety of different seeds which will be distributed to local families so that they can be used effectively to provide sustenance.
From September to March, volunteers will organize women empowerment, health education and environmental awareness activities with the local people.
