 Health and Nutrition

SAFI works in  among the rural communities, and the people affected by flood, earth quakes and other natural disasters supporting with health and nutrition related parcels. People in those areas are often have problem of potable water and healthy food resulting in suffering from diarrhea and other diseases. Assessing and realizing the facts and requirements, SAFI also supports in awareness building and inplementing programs with special focus on women, children and other vulnerable groups.

Infrastructure and Shelter

In rural area of Nepal, people are not aware of building code, bye laws  and earth quake resistance building design and construction. Due to the earthquake, large no of shelters were destroyed and people are living in temporary shelter made by CGI sheets and by using salvage materials. For construction of earthquake resistance permanent shelters they need technical knowhow. In Governmental line agencies they don’t have sufficient technical manpower for technical support and for monitoring such activities.  So SAFI supports the people these sectors and aspects.

  For making resilience communities who are affected from earthquake, flood and other disaster only shelter support is not sufficient. They need to construct different structures such as school buildings, drinking water supply schemes, irrigation schemes, roads, culverts which support in overall development of the community. So, SAFI identifies the actual need and help backstopping and constructing the rural infrastructure.

 Environment &Livelihood

Agriculture is the main source of income and to improve the livelihood of the rural community. In rural area of Nepal there is huge potential to use natural resources for improving the livelihood of community. SAFI supports the poor and marginalized people by promoting innovating agriculture based income generation activities with efficient knowledge sharing and technology transfer.
