Christian Society Development Campaign (CSDC)

History and Key Successes of the Organisation

A Brief History of the Organisation

Christian Society Development Campaign (CSDC) is a Non-Governmental Organisation established in 2006, in Rukum district which is in the eastern region of Nepal. This organisation was founded and registered at the District Administration Office in 2006 and was also affiliated with the Social Welfare Council during the same year.

The main purpose in establishing this organisation was not only to support the growth of the Church but also to help improve the standard of living for the people in Rukum in regard to health, education, transportation, electricity and drinking water. Since 2008 this organisation has been working in collaboration with UMN and local Government agencies. CSDC has been inspired to try and address the various factors that can limit a person’s quality of life, following Jesus example to us.

In the beginning the organisation faced many challenges, but Pastor Jawaharlal Pun and Abhinash Budha did not give up on their vision. By collaborating with UMN the organisation has been able to develop new skills, establish well organised structures and make a significant contribution to development issues in Rukum.

   Key Successes and Achievements of the Organisation:
  • Adolescents in Ransi, Moranabang, Syalapakha, Rukumkot and Mahat VDCs were orientated on Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health;
  • Community members participated in the Participatory Planning Process and were enabled to submit their proposals to the VDC Council, which were then approved by Councils in Morabang and Ransi;
  • CSDC have established good coordination and linkage between service providers and service users in Morabang;
  • 7CSDC have established an effective, system-based organisation.
