History and Key Successes of the Organisation

A Brief History of the Organisation

Nepal Magar Society Service and Information Centre (MIC Nepal) is a Non-Governmental Organisation, which was established with a vision for an “equitable, empowered and self-reliant society”. MIC Nepal decided to concentrate on developing education and sustainable livelihoods in the area. MIC strongly believe in community participation, the empowerment of women and local resources as key factors in mobilising Society to change.

This organisation was founded and registered at the District Administration Office in 2003 and became affiliated with the Social Welfare Council in the same year. The seven board members have been governing the organisation smoothly. In 2003 the Maoist movement also started and MIC was not allowed to run its office and carry out its work. The organisation was also looking for some additional support and training from outside, which it received when UMN started to work in Rukum. MIC were selected as partners and have received on-going organisational capacity building from UMN.
