CARE Nepal is an international humanitarian organization working in the country for the past four decades. CARE Nepal’s work largely centers on addressing the underlying causes of poverty and ensuring social justice for the most vulnerable and marginalized populations, with women and adolescent girls as the main impact groups. CARE Nepal’s current programs areas are broadly grouped into three themes: i) women’s economic empowerment and climate justice ii) gender justice and health and educational rights iii) disaster risk reduction and gender in emergency. In addition, gender equity and social inclusion (GESI), social norms, inclusive governance and accountability, and partnership and alliance run as cross-cutting themes across programs.

The Start Network is made up of more than 50 aid agencies across five continents, ranging from large international organizations to national NGOs. Together, our aim is to transform humanitarian action through innovation, fast funding, early action, and localization. Start Fund Nepal is a Start Network program hosted by CARE Nepal. In June 2021, with support from the UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), Start Fund Nepal was launched. The Start Fund Nepal Pilot is a collectively managed emergency financing mechanism, developed in Nepal by Start Network members and partner NGOs with support from Start Fund Nepal and the global Start Fund. The pilot project was completed in March 2022. Phase II of Start Fund Nepal began in April 2022 and will conclude in March 2024. Based on the global guideline, Start Fund Nepal also follows the 45 days implementation cycle, making funding decisions within 72 hours of a crisis alert, with awarded agencies starting project implementation in 7 days.
