Our approach to development work stresses the concept of successful partnerships to maximize our resources and reduce redundancy. Over the years, we have worked closely with several local and international nonprofit organizations, government agencies, pursuing our main goal of empowering Nepali women and their families.
For several years, the Didi Project has sponsored a networking conference in Kathmandu. Community leaders from many helping groups gathered together to share their program goals, methods and challenges. We have been very fortunate to enjoy working relationships with many Nepalese and foreign experts. Our list of partners and colleagues has included:
In accordance with our belief in productive partnerships, we continue our support of various related organizations based in Nepal: Ama Ghar Children's Home, Educate the Children Nepal, 3 Sisters/Empowering Women in Nepal, and Human Rights Film Focus Nepal.
Board member Heidi Feldman visited Ama Ghar while she was in Nepal in October 2016. She had a chance to check in with the staff and play with the lively hoard of children. She left some gifts with them, including a Zumba exercise DVD--the children love to dance and sing! And she left a cash donation, to be used at the discretion of the staff.
She also visited the 3 Sisters Lodge, where she caught up with their nonprofit organization Empowering Women in Nepal, an amazing, award-winning project helping many women and girls in Pokhara and Western Nepal. The Didi Projects supports their work with small grants and BECHIYEKI and SOLD book donations.
