What we aim for?

Eco-Reach Foundation is revitalizing traditional agricultural and construction skills and knowledge by introducing modern green technology. We aim to seek the eco-friendly alternatives for farming, construction, and tourism. Our activities help communities to build local capacity to preserve and restore natural eco-system. We assist farmers to cultivate organic food and live eco-friendly life. Our projects help farmers to stop the use of harmful chemicals in their farms. In addition, Eco-Reach promotes conservation and utilization of local knowledge and resources.

Where we work?

Agriculture & Food Safety

According to the International Labor Organisation, agriculture provides livelihoods for 68 percent of Nepal's population, accounting for 34 percent of the GDP. Nevertheless, Nepal struggles to produce an adequate supply of food for its citizens. The Agriculture and Food Safety Project is well aligned with country's need by educating farmers about organic farming and the use of green technology.

Gender Equality and Social Inclusion

Gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) is underline requirement for all of our programs. The program aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. Eco-Reach always prioritize GESI issues in our projects.

Natural Resources Management

Population growth and surging demand for agricultural land has put tremendous pressure on natural resources as people strive to meet their daily needs for food, shelter, and energy. Nepal is facing increasing pressure from local and international businesses to exploit natural resources in the quest for economic growth. Eco-Reach believes that such growth and conservation are not mutually exclusive. Our programs emphasize the conservation of natural resources by utilizing green energy technology and organic farming standards.

Environment & Health

Many diseases and health problems are linked to contamination in our environment. Each and every day the detrimental impact of the pollution is more and more visible. There is an urgent call for stronger anti-pollution policy. Eco-Reach believes education can lead to better environment preservation practices.

Quality of Life

The quality of life improvement project has the overall objectives to improve socio-ecological resilience of rural community from land degradation. The Eco-Reach Foundation strives to educate farmers about better utilization of farmland for self use and commercial gains.

Natural Disaster Management

Geographically, Nepal is in a constant threat of multiple natural hazards. Flood, landslide and fire are frequent occurrences. 2015 earthquake has shattered Nepal, exposing the country's complete unpreparedness for the disaster response. Due to the lack of preparation and recovery,there were many deaths recorded at various settlements. Even 3 years later,people are still struggling to rebuild their houses. Eco-Reach Foundation aim to help effectively mitigate the impact of disasters in the country. We educate communities about disaster preparedness and recovery.
