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 marginalized populations. This includes people who live in geographically remote areas of Nepal, people who are from historically marginalized ethnic groups, and those marginalized because of their age and/or gender identity (women and girls). More recently, PIN has also supported Nepal’s post-earthquake reconstruction efforts ensuring that the most vulnerable people are not left behind. PIN is strongly committed for safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, including people with disability, in line with its safeguarding framework and child protection policy.
The project titled Risk-Informed Landslide Management in Nepal’s Hill Areas is a 1.5-year program funded by European Union. This project is implemented by a consortium comprising of PIN, NSET, SWN, CSRC, DU & NU with an aim to improve resilience of hill communities in four municipalities in Sindhupalchok and Dolakha districts through strengthening risk-informed landslide management at the local level. The core objective is to work with local authorities and disaster management institutions, key actors involved in road construction and infrastructure projects, communities and national government to increase their understanding of landslide hazards, the risks they pose and the impact of human disturbance on communities exposed to hazard risks.
Leave No Girl Behind (LNGB) is a five-year program funded by the Girls’ Education Challenge (GEC). The project will be implemented in Bara and Rautahat districts, by two local partner organizations, with strong emphasis on literacy, numeracy, lifeskill and social norms transformation. An independent external evaluator will carry out the project evaluation.
