    Udhyami Fellowship: Business Literacy

    UDHYAMI FELLOWSHIP: Business Literacy. ISAP has been working with aspiring entrepreneurs, we call Udhyami Fellows, who are looking to establish small scale mushroom farms. By pairing fellows with entrepreneurs who have been in business for more than 5 years, we provide an apprenticeship like environment. Although the master entrepreneurs are at the forefront of teaching the skills they possess, ISAP provides the back-end support. Before conducting a visiting our Udhyami Fellows this week, we sat down to discuss how we should support the development of our business plan.

    Nepal Earthquake: One Year On.

    Nepal Earthquake: One Year On. Its has been one year since the massive tremors shook Nepal affecting hundreds of thousands of people. ISAP members were in affected villages and urban centers assessing needs and volunteering within 24 hours of the earthquake.
    .
    ISAP then assisted ピースウィンズ・ジャパン Peace Winds Japan (PWJ) and Asia Pacific Alliance (APAD) in their search and rescue effort as well as to provide immediate relief to 700 HH of Kubhinde VDC by providing food items. This immediate food support enabled people to get back on their feet and get going. With the assistance of Crossroads Foundation, ISAP assisted 15 families in Dhadhing with tarps and foods, a school in Sindhupalchowk with CGI roof and Bloom Nepal School with 50 mats for their hostel students. But we continued to work towards restarting the local economy: getting the mills running so people can grind their grains and restarting the dairy milk collection so there was flow of cash into the community.
    .
    We then continued to provide medium term support to earthquake surviors. With PWJ, we distributed CGI sheets to 2600 HH so people can move on from tents and tarps to a more sturdy temporary shelter. Our next aim was to help the community generate enough man power to rebuild their homes. Through a 45 day on-the-job training, we trained 60 people of Sanosirubari VDC to become stone laying masons. A by-product of this exercise was 8 community buildings which are being used by dairy cooperatives, forest user groups, agricultural cooperatives, community driven saving and credit group, etc. We are now working on rehabilitating water supply and irrigation schemes and as training more mason through our on-the-job training in Sanosirubari and Irkhu VDC.
    .
    With APAD, we are worked to demolish damaged schools buildings in addition to building TLCs in three schools in Jyamire VDC. We would working further in Ramechap for mason training and community awareness.
