Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions into action — helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within. Now, and for the future. Mercy Corps has been operating in Nepal since 2005, implementing programs in food security, agriculture, market development, financial services, girl’s education, climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction. We take a systems-based approach in our programming, with the aim of improving the lives and potential of vulnerable individuals and communities across Nepal.

Mercy Corps Nepal is implementing BHAKARI program from October 2020 to enhance food and nutrition security, reduce future humanitarian caseload and improve the resilience of communities to recurrent shocks along the Karnali river basin (KRB). BHAKARI is a multiyear emergency programming funded by USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Affairs (BHA). The program is being implemented in 6 districts (Mugu, Jumla, Kalikot, Surkhet, Achham, and Dailekh, with cluster hubs in Surkhet and Jumla). The sectoral programmatic intervention includes agriculture and market systems, disaster risk reduction, water for productive use, natural resources management, emergency response to multiple (localized) shocks with GESI – first approach that emphasis on a gender and social inclusion approach, reaching to the most vulnerable segment of the society with integrated multi-sectoral approach.

Mercy Corps Nepal is planning to procure agricultural commodities for USAID funded BHAKARI program. Agriculture input support envisioned under BHAKARI is to support vulnerable farmers impacted from drought, covid and monsoon who are not connected with quality market vendors and facing problems due to low access and procurement capacity. The participants of this support will get technical support from implementing partners for the utilization and proper use.
