History and Key Successes of the Organisation
A Brief History of the Organisation
Lumbini Christian Society (LCS) is a non-profit making, non-Government, Christian faith based organisation. LCS was registered with the District Administration office, Rupandehi in 2063 BS in the joint initiative of the local Christian churches of Butwal and Butwal Christian Society and has been involved in social development work since its inception. Later on it was affiliated with the Social Welfare Council (SWC).
Pastors of the local churches and some members of the congregations felt that they should have a good organisation to serve all the people in the Lumbini zone, so these people initiated all the preliminary work and prepared the organisation’s constitution for registration. At the time of registration, LCS faced a lot of difficulties and the NGO registration authority refused to register it, saying it was a Religious and Christian organisation. Later on we successfully registered it at DAO, Rupandehi on our fourth attempt.
The inspiration for establishing the organisation comes from the word of God, “Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28). LCS aims to establish a peaceful society through its work in peace and reconciliation.
