Welcome to the latest edition of CECI Nepal newsletter ‘IMPACT’. In this issue you will get a glimpse of our major activities from May to December 2015.
During this period we faced many challenges but also got many opportunities. At the end of April, a devastating earthquake of 7.8 magnitude hit the country killing thousands and displacing millions of people. CECI immediately began an emergency response program which now continues as a recovery and livelihood supports program for earthquake victims. CECI signed one new project in good governance entitled the Public Expenditure Tracking Survey (PETS) with PACT under the Sajhedari Bikaas (SB) project funded by USAID. New phases of PRAN and UNITERRA Projects also began their implementation in this period.
CECI continued its on-going programs such as consulting work with the Skills Development Project and managing its volunteer programs. We welcomed new volunteers and bade farewell to outgoing volunteers. As always, we are strengthening our commitment towards capacity building, good governance, gender equality and social inclusion. I would like to thank all of our partners including government agencies, donors, civil society and other organizations for their continued support.
Finally, I would like to thank Ms. Mallika Bhattarai for her untiring efforts to bring out this newsletter. I hope you will enjoy reading this.
