Vision & Mission
Empower and improve the overall status of women and their families for the upliftment of the community.
“To work for the upliftment of community people through better education and health promotion, as well as promote environmentally sustainable income generation.”
In alignment to its mission, HCN hopes to empower the Bote and Kumal community in the Palpa district, currently in Darpuk. As identified in the problem section above, there are many reasons this community has fallen behind; however, HCN realizes that Bote and Kumals are very resilient people and they are willing to work hard to create a better life for themselves and for their children. Yet HCN realized that Bote and Kumals are unaware of their place in the society; hence, it utilizes right based approach (RBA), to ascertain them that they are entitled to equal worth and dignity in attaining their basic social standards. Bote and Kumals are encouraged through informed participation in shaping their own community and promote/advocate changes to improve their social condition and attain social justice. Empowerment is promoted through the emphasis on already available strengths and resources of Bote and Kumal community through promoting their existing skills such as fishing, poultry, and pottery making; from active involvement of Bote Community Strengthening Committee and their leadership is being realized through their own community member.
