Centre For Equal Access Development - Nepal (CEAD-NEPAL)

History and Key Successes of the Organisation

A Brief History of the Organisation

In the beginning more than 50 young people in the Pachnali village of Doti started a campaign to abolish alcoholism and to clean up the village. This was led by Sher Bahadur Malla, the current chairperson of the Organisation. Initially they faced a lack of support and cooperation from their own relatives and villagers. After learning many lessons, they decided to support the local farmers with the maintenance of a small irrigation canal. They registered their organisation at the District Administration Office (DAO) as a Non-Profit Making, Non-Governmental Development Organisation.

   Key Successes and Achievements of the Organisation:
  • 36,600 mothers and children have benefited from their work in child protection (CFLG), the Primary Health Care Outreach Clinic (PHC/ORC) and the birthing centre;
  • 104 people living with mental health problems and one hundred and eight people living with HIV, benefited from the Organisation;
  • They developed an HIV curriculum and implemented it in secondary schools;
  • They improved the health of five hundred and five children, who were all under five years, through the Positive Deviance Hearth (PD Hearth) Centre;
  • 2,475 people were orientated on social accountability tools, citizen rights and entitlements in 31 VDCs and 1 Municipality.
