Clean up Nepal’s up-cycling training is an initiative to manage dry waste, and support and empower women by teaching them skills to turn otherwise discarded plastics into useful products and earn a supplementary income.
Kathmandu is choking due to single-use plastic bags. This is one of the biggest environmental problems we face in the urban and semi urban areas of Nepal. Let’s take action NOW to change this. Please sign this petition now to raise awareness among your friends and family. One person at a time, we can make a difference!
Our vision is for communities to have access to a solid waste management system and the associated knowledge and resources that enables them to live a healthy, disease-free life. We do this by connecting, educating and empowering people on improved solid waste management through a people-centred, strength based approach to improve community health, well-being and opportunity.
We work to empower the volunteers and communities we work with for they are central to our organisation. We do this by providing training, volunteer induction sessions and workshops. We have a strong Clean up Nepal team in Kathmandu. We are currently in the process of building the capacity of our teams in Bhaktapur, Pokhara and Chitwan.
Our people come from all over the place – Kathmandu, Chitwan, Pokhara, Bhaktapur, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, New York. We are designers, communication experts, strategic planners, human resources specialists, engineers, designers, entrepreneurs, students, urban planners, organisational development experts, teachers, media specialists. We are a vibrant group of individuals and our passion for the environment brings us together!
We build the capacity of communities using a strengths-based approach to community development.
We engage with students and youth of educational institutes to enhance awareness of environmental issues and ecologically sustainable choices.
We mobilize individuals globally to support campaigns on environmental issues aimed at raising awareness and support to create positive change.
We work with universities and educational institutions in Nepal to undertake small-scale research on waste management in Nepal.
Clean up Nepal volunteers are an incredible group of people. Not only do they give their precious time to help us with our common goal of a cleaner and greener Nepal, but they also form the backbone of our organisation.
Clean up Nepal organizers lead the planning, design and development of events in their localities such as community cleanups, trainings and workshops, film screenings and other awareness raising events.
Clean up Nepal partners play a crucial role in how we function as an organisation. Our collaborative approach means we actively seek to work together with organisations that have similar values and working approaches.
