History and Key Successes of the Organisation
A Brief History of the Organisation
Chandramukhi club is a non-profit non-Governmental organisation established in 2056 BS. It is situated in Chimadi of Sunsari. This organisation was established with the target and vision to include youths, intellectuals and social activists to uproot the various harmful traditional practices, problems and other anti-social activities within society.
After its establishment, it has worked on a drinking water supply programme (especially the installation of the Tube Well) for the marginalised community. It has also focused on early childhood development in partnership with Plan Nepal. In the beginning, the organisation’s executive committee members didn’t have any ideas as to how to run the organisation. The board members relied on the advice of other colleagues who were already working in this field. Now, the board members and staff are much clearer as to how to govern the organisation and have clear organisational procedures and systems in place as a result of UMN’s capacity building support.
