Vision

Creation of conscious, constructive, capable, cooperative, productive, progressive, prosperous socioeconomic and physical settings for disadvantaged and deprived communities in Nepal, thereby ensuring strengthened and sustainable harmony and peace.

Mission

Promoting the transition to sustainable ways of living and a global society founded on a shared ethical framework that includes respect and care for community, ecological integrity, universal human rights, socio-cultural diversity, economic justice, democracy, and a culture of sustained peace.

Goal

To contribute to the general sustainable development process in Nepal and the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through suitable and effective developmental interventions for rural poor households in Nepal.

The Peace for People, hereinafter briefly referred to as PfP, is a non-governmental and non-profit professional organization, bearing the main objective of elevating poor people’s living conditions and thus bringing about peace and harmony in communities. This objective is realized through the formulation and execution of programs aimed at raising awareness and support for skill development, quality education, improved health, sanitation, livelihoods, and overall sustained socioeconomic advancement at the grassroots level. PfP is formed and functioning by a group of people with deep sense of sympathy and support towards disadvantaged and deprived places and people in Nepal, aided by generous backing of both domestic and international individuals and institutions interested in contributing to the development of such lagging communities that require and deserve effective developmental interventions. The guiding principles of the organization chiefly constitute of accountability, commitment, equity, honesty, harmony, goodwill, compassion, coordination, cooperation, collaboration, environmentally-friendly development strategies, and sustainability, all aimed at attaining lasting prosperity and peace.

Established on Monday 16 November 2009, PfP has been registered at the District Administrative Office, Kathmandu, under the Organization Registration Act 1977 and affiliated to the Social Welfare Council, Nepal. The problems and potentials of Nepal as briefly reflected in the preamble above constitute the influencing factors for the concept of creating the PfP as a mechanism to harness cooperation among like-minded individuals and institutions at the local, national, and international levels so as to launch plausible programs. The goal of the latter is to enhance awareness, capabilities, cooperation, productivity, progress, prosperity and eventually peace and harmony among members of the (impoverished) target communities and beyond. The organization was formed at a time when the ten-year long armed conflict in the country had just ended and the relatively poorer and poorest sections of the society had been suffering most from the consequences and the aftermaths of the insurgency situation.

There was and still is an immense need for making suitable developmental interventions aimed at ameliorating the socioeconomic and psychological state of the conflict-affected people in rural and remote areas of the country. Harmony and cooperation among sections of the society that belong to diverse cultures, castes, religions and locations is vital to stimulate and strengthen creative community initiatives and actions for generating benefits to all. A realization of this has been instrumental behind the idea of forming and operating the PfP, as it is intended to promote sustainable peace in the Nepalese society. Sensibility and sensitivity of serving those who are in trouble and need external support constitute a specific and special humane instinct and virtue. Adopting these traits in practice in the real-life situations was the sole intent with which PfP came to existence, along with the sense of redefining peace.

Peace is beyond and more important than material wellbeing. However, the fulfillment of basic needs of life such as food, shelter, clothing, education, justice, and security constitute the fundamental prerequisite to peace. A peaceful environment prevailing among people could stimulate and further boost economic progress, prosperity, and sustainable development. With this core conviction, PfP embraces concomitant commitments to contributing to the government’s efforts towards national development.

PfP strives to support local people in coming up and completing creative developmental endeavors among themselves so as to encourage and enrich an environment of goodwill, harmony and peace among communities so that the impacts could be in line with and in support of the government’s programs aimed at attaining community development and meeting international targets of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. In this regard, PfP is devoted to creating, maintaining and strengthening collaborative working relationships with the Government of Nepal as well as various individuals and institutions within and outside the country. The fundamental features of PfP have been stated hereunder.

Nepal is a predominantly mountainous, rural, and agricultural landlocked country in South Asia and is bordered by China to the north, and India to the south, east, and west. The Himalaya mountain range runs across Nepal’s northwestern part, and eight of the world’s ten highest mountains, including the world’s highest 8,848m high Mount Everest (Sagarmatha in Nepali), lie in the country with the lowest elevation of 60m above mean sea level. The total area of Nepal is 14,7181km2,and it extends to about 800km from east to west and to 90-230km from north to south. With 77% of the total land in mountainous form, Nepal is commonly divided into three physiographic zones: Himal (mountains); Pahad (hills); and Terai(plains) from north to south. It has five climatic zones, broadly corresponding to the altitudes: (i) tropical and subtropical (below 1,200m; (ii) temperate (1,200m – 2,400m); (iii) cold (2,400 – 3,600m); (iv) subarctic (3,600m 4,400m); and Arctic (above 4,400m), and experiences five distinct seasons: summer, monsoon, autumn, winter, and spring.

Nepal’s current population is about 30 million. The majority of people in Nepal follow Hinduism (81.3%) and Buddhism (9.0%). Islam, Kirat, Jainism, Christianity and others are followed but by a relatively low proportion of the population. People of 126 castes and ethnicities with almost as many languages/dialects live in the country, and each ethnic group has their own specific cultural characteristics. Clearly, Nepal has a tremendously large vertical differentiation accompanied by hugely diverse geomorphologic and climatic variations leading to amazingly diverse natural, biological and cultural beauty and bounty.

Over 80% of the Nepalese population is still living a rural lifestyle, and although only 20% of Nepal’s total land is cultivable, almost 65% of the people rely directly and indirectly on agriculture and forestry related occupations that contribute to over 30% to the gross domestic product (GDP). Once thickly forested, the country has now faced deforestation as a major problem resulting in erosion and degradation of ecosystems and subsequent complications and calamities. As of now only about 40% of the country’s land is covered by shrubs, grasslands and forests combined.

With the recent HDI of 0.574 and 149th rank among 189 countries and territories of the world, Nepal is one of the least developed countries that is barely reaching the GDP of US$1,000. Nearly one-fourth of the total population living below the poverty line. The literacy rate at present is 66% and the average life expectancy at birth is 70 years. Poor accessibility, shortage of employment opportunities, meager household incomes, scarcity of fertile cultivatable land and irrigation facility, poor productivity, food and nutrition deficiencies, lack of education and skills, prevalence of primary health ailments and injuries, deforestation of fragile lands, depletion of land productivity, and frequent and severe natural calamities have been factors seriously pestering the rural population in particular and hindering their progress and peace. Such circumstances in rural remote areas eventually create unfavorable situations such as congestion, pollution, scarcity and crisis particularly for the urban poor, although even the rich cannot escape from such maladies and mess.

The best way to bring about lasting progress, prosperity and peace in both rural and urban areas is to first improve the living conditions of people under poverty in disadvantaged locations and circumstances. Nepal does indeed have huge potential for development given the immensely rich natural and cultural beauty and bounty it possesses such as the vast potential for hydropower generation and related economic enterprises, including diverse varieties of tourism. Strong and sincere concerns, commitments and collaboration among like-minded individuals and institutions within the country and beyond would be essential in harnessing the above-reflected possibilities for direct and indirect multiple benefits to societies near and far across our planet Earth.

Objectives

The overall objective of PfP is to strengthen and sustain humane awareness, goodwill, harmony, productivity, progress, prosperity and peace among rural poor communities by initiating and supporting creative socioeconomic and environment-related activities locally. In this regard, the specific objectives are:

  • To conduct research and use the findings as the basis for exploring and clearly identifying the critical problems that individual households and communities in the target areas are facing;
  • To design and deliver suitable supportive services schemes in effectively mobilizing and motivating the communities towards mutual self-help, innovation, and productivity enhancement endeavors in various socioeconomic and environmental aspects of local life and livelihoods of households disadvantaged and deprived in terms of development;
  • To allocate in all its programs a special thrust to ameliorating such acute local socioeconomic and environmental situations and maladies as illiteracy, low and poor-quality education, lack of professional skills, poor health and sanitation, malnutrition, HIV/AIDS infestation, deforestation, vulnerability to natural disasters, unemployment, low incomes and living conditions;
  • To work in line with and in support of Government of Nepal’s programs for poverty alleviation, promotional services such as infrastructure, local prosperity, peace-building, and sustainable development; and
  • To develop, expand and enrich cordial relationships with local, provincial, national and international individuals and institutions for productive collaboration for effective service delivery in PfP program areas.

The primary target beneficiaries of PfP include disadvantaged, marginalized and poor households or communities, especially children, youth, and women in rural remote areas of Nepal. Its supplemental beneficiaries comprise schools, local CBOs, NGOs, and other types of community groups that are in need of external support and can serve as conduits for development service delivery to the primary beneficiaries of the PfP.

  • Education and skills;
  • Emergency relief;
  • Awareness, empowerment, goodwill, and harmony.

In implementing its programs/projects, PfP adopts a three-pronged strategy with

(i) problem area identification.

(ii) Networking for resource mobilization.

(iii) Forging suitably supportive intervention at the grassroots level.
