At Awful Grace, one of the pillars of our focus in Nepal is in the area of Sustainable Community Development.

SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

The 2017 mission achieved two objectives, the first was to fulfil our commitment of running a mobile clinic in Kathmandu, Chitwan and Pokhara. The second was to launch the community development project which enabled 20 families in Chitwan to start their own goat farms for sustainable livelihood. 15 volunteers from Singapore joined hands with more than 12 volunteers from Nepal to complete the mission.

In all, more than 300 children were engaged across three locations, with therapeutic and learning activities, as well as the provision of primary health and dental care, dispensing of vitamins, deworming tablets, eye drops, toothpaste, tooth brush, shampoo and soap. These children were also prepared to return to school with the distribution of school backpack s and school supplies like uniforms, writing pads and pencils. An added bonus was the opportunity to visit the men and women in Pokhara Prison (Kashki) where we ran the medical and dental clinics for 420 inmates.
