0$5 can pay for a sewing machine for one month to give vulnerable young women an income in Nepal.
Nepal is one of the poorest and least developed countries in South Asia. The decade-long Nepali Civil War (1996-2006) between government forces and Maoists killed over 12,000 people. Although a peace settlement was declared, inequality, discrimination and lack of basic services - all factors which contributed to the conflict - are still widespread.
Caritas Australia supports development programs with Caritas Nepal, covering areas such as education, peace, food security, sustainable agriculture, enterprise development and disaster risk reduction.
