A Brief History of the Organisation
Ekikrit Bikash Munch (EBM) is a local Non-Governmental Organisation which was founded by a group of local social leaders, teachers, farmers, women and youth of Bhatekhola and Masta of the Masta Rural Municipality in 2003. Formerly it was known as the Integrated Community Forestry and Multi- Purpose Farmer Group. This was replaced by Ekikrit Bikash Munch in 2009.

With the support of UMN it has been enabling farmers to be more productive and to produce high quality crops.
