Dhading | Province 3
History and Key Successes of the Organisation
A Brief History of the Organisation
Himalaya Community Salvation Society (HIMS Nepal) is a faith based non-profit, Non-Government Organisation, which was established in 2005 from a community initiative aimed at the development of local people. The organisation was established by the community, hence it has always emphasized the inclusion of a diverse range of people. The organisation has been running programmes in the remote villages of North Dhading where social-economic, spiritual and educational conditions are very limited. The main issues facing the area are food security, health, hygiene and local resources mobilisation.
During the early stages of the organisation’s life they faced many challenges. At that time they collected money from general members who were employed abroad. Many community people have been involved in the small steps they have made in community development. After the earthquake, HIMS has been trying to bring improvement in these sectors by running the “Disaster Response Programme” with the support of UMN Dhading.
