This report provides you with a comprehensive understanding of our development projects and programs that covered 27 districts by reaching 101,050 direct and about 266,000 indirect beneficiaries in this reporting
During this period, CECI has successfully accomplished one project; Multi-Donor Trust Fund/Program for Accountability in Nepal (MDTF/PRAN2),funded by World Bank; and launched two new projects: Sustainable Use of Technology for Public Service Accountable in Nepal (SUSASAN) and Livelihood Promotion of Earthquake Affected Population in Nepal (PUNARNIRMAN). SUSASAN promotes local governance through constructive dialogue between government institutions and citizens leveraging the technology where as PUNARNIRMAN aims at supporting earthquake affected population in three districts with the providing support of livelihood promotion,
skills and enterprise development. Our consulting services to the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Nepal government funded Skills Development Project (SDP) is on-going.
