Saving lives, changing minds on Nepal roads on top of the World
Description: Kathmandu, Nepal The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies – the IFRC - operates in 190 countries around the world. In many of its humanitarian operations, it utilises four-wheel drive vehicles, primarily the 4 x 4 vehicles, to bring Disaster Response assistance to those in need. The drivers of these vehicles hold very responsible positions. Apart from ensuring the care of expensive equipment, that is the vehicles themselves, drivers are also responsible for the safety of passengers and of other road users. They are also often the first Nepal Red Cross Society and IFRC representatives to receive and welcome guests and as such, playing a key role in making a positive and lasting first impression. The 4 x 4 vehicles help us do our job. The life of a driver and that of passengers depends on how well the vehicle works in the field. As a driver, you are responsible for what you do, and for the image and reputation of the Nepal Red Cross Society and International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. It is therefore imperative that as a driver you know your limitations when behind the wheel and not exceed them. The objective of this International Fleet management and Road Safety Driver training is designed to equip drivers with the knowledge and skills required to operate these vehicles and their additional equipment and tools, while at the same time have great knowledge of the vehicles they operate and while having an improved appreciation of Nepal’s topography which presents the most challenging and dangerous driving experience in the world.

Nepal: A path to recovery
Description: In April 2015, central Nepal was struck by a 7.8-magnitude earthquake and several major aftershocks which killed more than 9 000 people. More than half a million homes were reduced to rubble, and countless roads, bridges and other infrastructure were left in ruins. Here in the remote village of Barpak, the epicentre of the earthquake, the powerful tremor damaged the walking trails that connected the village to the rest of the country. To restore access to services for the villagers, EU Humanitarian Aid has supported People in Need (PIN) in implementing a trail reconstruction programme in the area. Under the initiative, vulnerable groups, such as breast-feeding women and female-headed households, are encouraged to help repair damaged trails in exchange for cash. This has not only provided affected families with an opportunity to earn income and improved their livelihoods, but also contributed to rebuilding the communities. Video by People in Need

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.
