Reports to: GEDSI Protection Lead/Urban Resilience Project Manager
People in Need (PIN) is a non-governmental, non-profit, international organization founded in the Czech Republic in 1992. PIN arrived in Nepal as part of a humanitarian response to the April 25, 2015 earthquake. Since its inception in Nepal, PIN has had a strong role advocating and addressing the needs of vulnerable populations affected by disaster including person categories who live in geographically remote areas of the country, historically marginalized ethnic groups, and those marginalized because of their age and/or gender identity. PIN has also supported Nepal’s post-earthquake reconstruction efforts ensuring that the most vulnerable people are not left behind with resilience (focused on shelter and resettlement) and inclusive education programming. PIN-Nepal is strongly committed for safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, including persons with disabilities, in line with its safeguarding framework and child protection policy.
Background- Urban resilience
PIN-Nepal conducted an Impact Assessment to assess the secondary impacts of Covid-19 Pandemic beyond the health sector. The results demonstrated that the pandemic has severely affected the Food Security and Livelihood Status of the surveyed populations, particularly urban households who were disproportionately affected by loss of employment opportunities. PIN therefore identifies the need to improve the food security and livelihood status of affected communities, especially in urban areas. These communities often struggle to meet their needs and fail to receive governmental support due to a diverse set of vulnerabilities.
