ETSC-Nepal has been implementing various programmes in the different VDCs of Makwanpur district and other district of Nepal. In these targeted areas, VDC level awareness groups have been formed. These awareness groups are being provided with capacity building opportunities for executing both the awareness activities as well as local level development activities such as plan development, management and implementation. In addition, this service has also been extended to other districts.
ETSC-Nepal has been guiding various community groups. As a result, this has been promoting special focus in the identification and mobilization of local level knowledge, skills, experience and different types of resources including the external resources as required for addressing various types of existing problems in the community. In this context, ETSC–Nepal has been institutionalizing and managing varied community groups. As its main value, ETSCN believes that sustainable development of the community is possible if the community people themselves take the initiative for fulfilling the basic needs of the community and for the qualitative development in their livelihood. Hence, ETSC –Nepal has been progressing forward with keen interest in realizing this value into real practice.
