Cordaid1
Community learning center for IDPs in Rasuwa, Nepal
Description: Following the devastating earthquakes in April and May 2015, many people fled their homes high in the mountains as roads and villages disappeared. Many of these people fled to the lower mountain belts where they settled on the slopes of the mountains in small make-shift camps, where they were living in appalling conditions without any support unable to make a living. In response to these needs, in July 2015, Cordaid together with Nepalese partners Parivartan Patra started providing WASH, livelihood and protection support to 500 families in 4 camps in the Rasuwa district. We trained the people in camp management, built decent water and sanitation facilities, organized hygiene promotion activities, provided mental health care ( through partner TPO) and developed their vocational skills ensuring the restoration of their livelihood. About us Cordaid is a global development organization whose mission is to create flourishing, self-reliant communities in the world's most fragile and conflict-affected areas. Together with local actors, we rebuild trust and stability by tackling multiple challenges in healthcare, education, food security and more. We use Performance Based Financing and local investments to secure solutions to complex problems. Our results are visibly shared, through open data and open development, empowering objective and transparent citizen engagement in the South and North. 100 years of experience The last 100 years Cordaid has been helping the most vulnerable people worldwide. Times have changed, but our mission has not.

Nepal: Building back better after the earthquake
Description: Central Nepal was struck by a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake in April 2015. The powerful tremor did not only result in a devastating loss of life, but also destroyed a countless number of houses and public facilities in 14 districts across Nepal. To enable the affected families to get back on their feet at the earliest possible, the European Commission funded the 'Nepal Earthquake Recovery Project' in four highly-impacted districts of Dhading, Sindhupalchowk, Makwanpur and Rasuwa. Implemented by a DanChurchAid-led consortium of humanitarian organisations, the initiative ensured that the most pressing needs of the most vulnerable communities were addressed. DanChurchAid and its partners delivered emergency relief consisting of shelter, food, winter supplies and access to water and sanitation, and spread knowledge on good hygiene practices. Trainings on earthquake-resilient construction techniques have also enabled local masons and carpenters to build homes which can withstand earthquakes. Thanks to this EU-funded project, more than 50 000 people – including children, women, the elderly and people with disabilities – in targeted areas are now equipped with means to restore their lives and cope with future disasters.
