You have an aid project in Nepal or collaborate with a local business partner and would like an independent opinion? You are planning to engage in Nepal, are still uncertain in relation to their partner? Or are you planning a longer volunteers or work stay in Nepal and want to prepare for language and culture?
Then I can help you: I speak Nepali and know country and people very well – exspecially Nepals far West. In terms of content, I have dealt with Nepal’s job market, educational opportunities, start – up, social business and NGO Law. In my close network are organizations which deal with women’s rights, rural devolpent, environmental consultation, sustainable construction, perma cutlure, biogas, indepedent journalist, soft tourism and many more. In many dialogs with families and local actors I won insights in it in many conversations, what is really needed and what not. Because not always what we Europeans in the head is what the Nepalese themweselves need or want to be. Too much western projects can be equally bad as not to do anything. I would be happy to help you finding the balance bewteen the two.
