(Nepal) Earthquake Relief and Human Development
Through the generosity of our benefactors, Father Joe Thaler, M.M., continues to rebuild the multiple programs that aim at providing health care and education for the workers employed by the brick factories as well as taking care of people residing in remote villages. In addition, the Trans Himalayan Environmental Livelihood Program provided training in cultivation, briquette making, organic farming and vermicomposting.
The Freed Kamaiya Upliftment Forum supports the freed kamaiya children through education promotion activities, empowers the freed kamaiya women through the training about income generation and capacity building, and sensitizes the freed kamaiya women through STI and HIV/AIDS awareness orientation activities.
The Disabled Welfare Association is a 10-month sewing program for the differently abled to learn how to sew with the objective of increasing awareness about their rights and enabling them to earn for themselves and their families.
With your help, Maryknoll can continue these projects in Nepal and provide a brighter future for families.
