Kiwi Plantation to Help Chepang People in Nepal

Posted by Kacie Emmerson

December 12, 2023

The Chepang people, an indigenous community residing in the remote regions of Nepal, face various socio-economic challenges, including poverty, limited access to education, and lack of economic opportunities. The introduction of kiwi plantations can address these issues by providing an alternative source of income and empowering the Chepang community to become self-reliant.

Nepal Nazareth Society identified suitable areas for a kiwi plantation, procured quality plants, provided training, and is collaborating with the ward and municipality in establishing market linkages through which the Chepang community can harness the benefits of kiwi cultivation. Nepal Nazareth Society will continuously monitor and do a proper follow-up so that this endeavor will contribute to poverty reduction, improved livelihoods, and overall community development, making it a sustainable and empowering initiative for the Chepang people of Dhading district of Nepal.
