EMPOWERING NEPALI WOMEN

CASD-Australia (Common Action for Sustainable Development)

Our mission is to empower women in rural Nepal through financial resources, education, and running water systems.

 

OUR STORY

Back in 2009, Rick Chong, from Australia, meets Prakash Ohja during his first trip to Nepal. This is the start of a strong and lasting friendship. Prakash tells Rick about his dream to create an organisation that helps his community in Western Nepal, an area that does not receive much attention from NGOs. He strongly believes that change can happen from the small things. Rick accepts the mission and CASD-Nepal is born.

 

After the devastating 2015 earthquakes, CASD launched the temporary shelter building project that would eventually house 600 people who lost their homes. 

Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve done since then:

  • Constructed a water pipeline in Kharaini (2015) 

  • Created a library in a primary school in Ghusel (2016)

  • Constructed a water pipeline for a remote school in Dovan (2017-2018)

  • Funded the restoration of Dadgaun Community Learning centre (2018)

  • We are currently working on the "Women and Water" project, which will couple running water systems with financial empowerment programs (2020)

The CASD family is now a worldwide group of registered NGOs with active members located  more than 5 countries (in the US, New Zealand, and Europe)
