Nepal Abinash Social Service Organisation (NASSO)

History and Key Successes of the Organisation

A Brief History of the Organisation

Nepal Abinash Social Service Organisation (NASSO) is a faith based organisation which was established in 2054 BS with the prayers of a small group of Abinash Church Pastors and registered at the District Administration Office, Rupandehi in 2055 BS (1999 AD).

At the beginning Pastors and Christian leaders were involved in the organisation. Before the partnership with UMN, NASSO didn’t know anything about organisational structure but after the partnership, UMN encouraged us and gave us many trainings and workshops regarding organisational capacity building.

NASSO is based in the Rupandehi district (south-west Nepal). With a strong emphasis on helping people to help themselves, many of NASSO’s activities involve supporting individuals to develop their own livelihoods.

   Key Successes and Achievements of the Organisation:
  • The organisation is now able to serve poor and marginalised people more effectively, having learnt from past learning and experiences;
  • It has developed organisational plans, policies and a code of conduct to dictate its governance, alongside better management of finance and human resources;
  • It maintains strong and good relationships with relevant stakeholders, through transparency and accountability measures;
  • With the support of NASSO it has increased access of community self-help groups to government services and facilities;
  • The livelihoods of target groups has improved through income generation activities.
