According to the World Bank, Nepal is currently in the position to “reduce poverty, increase income, … and pursue its ambitious agenda of inclusive growth and accountable service delivery.”
This comes as the country still suffers as one of the poorest countries in South Asia: 25% of Nepalis live below the poverty line.
This is further exacerbated during times of emergency as Nepal finds itself in the path of natural disasters regularly.
With all this considered, one thing remains clear: The people of Nepal are resilient and, with the support of donors like you, families in need there can access opportunities to break the chains of poverty and move toward success.
