NOTICE FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (EOI)
PHASE (Practical Help Achieving Self-Empowerment) Nepal is a non-governmental, non-profit making and non-political organization with equal opportunities. It specializes in improving and strengthening health, education and livelihood opportunities for marginalized and disadvantaged populations in very remote and resource poor Himalayan/mountain villages in Nepal. PHASE aims to support the most vulnerable people to break the cycle of poverty; by assisting communities and local authorities to lay the groundwork for a self-empowered and self-sustained society. In order to empower individuals and communities at all levels and ensure leave no one behind, PHASE has always been an integrated program approach that addresses multifaceted problems of poverty and exclusion in a multi-sector approach.
Preliminary discussions with local government representatives suggest that in spite of a number of NGOs involved in Ajirkot, Dharche, and Tsumnubri, access to services, markets and livelihood opportunities are still problematic, especially for the poorest and most marginalized members of communities. In Gandaki, there is somewhat better access to higher education and to health services (there is a college up to Bachelor’s level in Darbhung and a Primary Healthcare Centre in Makaising), but the most vulnerable groups struggle to access these, and have little access to sustainable livelihoods.
PHASE Nepal is implementing the Purnima “Leave No One Behind” project in the four selected municipalities of Gorkha District, Chumnubri, Dharche, Ajirkot, and Gandaki. Regular and interactive discussions with local government representatives suggest that in spite of a number of NGOs involved in Ajirkot, Dharche, and Chumnubri, access to services, markets, and livelihood opportunities are still problematic, especially for the poorest and most marginalized members of communities. In Gandaki, there is somewhat better access to higher education and to health services, but the most vulnerable groups struggle to access these, and have little access to sustainable livelihoods. Thus, PHASE Nepal aims to have changed context of the district and rural municipalities with the project interventions and provide benefit for vulnerable groups and individuals in the targeted communities through this program under the following four levels:
a) Higher awareness of the individual and their family of services and support available
b) Facilitated access to services and direct support to increase mobility and independence for those who are in need of this support
c) Improved livelihood opportunities for vulnerable individuals and families
d) Higher awareness of vulnerability issues in the community and local government and higher capacity of local government to respond to and mitigate vulnerabilities. In order to ensure improved livelihood opportunities for selected vulnerable individual of the project target area, we are planning to conduct vocational and skill development trainings and capacitate selected individuals in ensuring their participants in enhancing livelihood through diversified income sources. The main objective of providing vocational and skill development trainings is to expand skill development through formal and informal capacity development opportunities in order to ensure higher income through diverse income opportunities for the most vulnerable individuals of the project target area.
