Our Vision

Fullness of life for all, in a transformed Nepali society.

Fullness of Life Model

In development work, we know that poverty arises from a complex web of inter-related causes, all of which work together to limit the ability of human beings to live as God intended. In UMN, we turned this understanding of poverty on its head, and tried to describe its opposite - what we want to see, the fullness of life that Jesus talked about. This has helped us explore what a full or abundant life would be like, and how we can contribute towards such a life for the people we serve here, in Nepal. Our model also helps us see how the impacts of actions taken in one area of a person or community's life flow through into other areas, making our work truly holistic.
