World Vision Hong Kong in Nepal (2017)Tags：
In recent years, Nepal has been in constant transition. This is partly due to the relatively frequent changes in government, as well as its challenging geography and susceptibility to natural disasters such as earthquakes and monsoons. Economically, although Nepal was able to half its poverty rate in 7 years and significantly reduced income inequality, it remains one of the poorest and slowest-growing economies in Asia, requiring long-term and effective solutions to its many problems including large-scale migration of labour and poor infrastructure.
World Vision started its long-term development work in Nepal in 2001. Currently, World Vision International Nepal (WVIN) works in 14 districts of the country and runs 17 Area Development Programmes across 10 districts. After the devastating earthquakes in 2015, WVIN responded with immediate relief, followed by recovery and rehabilitation efforts in some of the worst-hit districts, working alongside humanitarian stakeholders, government and community partners to help children and families recover and strengthen their resilience.
In 2017, World Vision Hong Kong contributed approximately HK$31.2 million to support 3 ADPs and 7 other projects in Nepal, benefiting over 138,600 people.
