Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Nepal is an International Non-Governmental Organization that builds the capacity of local Nepali implementing partners working with highly marginalized communities. Our current sectors of work are: food security and sustainable livelihoods; health, water, hygiene and sanitation; rural education and youth training/development; and emergency disaster response.
Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) began sending volunteers to Nepal in 1956, initially seconding engineers, teachers and medical professionals through United Mission to Nepal. In 2009, MCC Nepal registered as an independent INGO with the Government of Nepal’s Social Welfare Council and shifted its focus to building the capacity of local partner organizations. The devastating earthquake in April 2015 significantly affected the working environment of MCC Nepal and its partners. In response, in addition to its long-term development projects, MCC is also working to restore homes and livelihoods in some of the areas most effected by the earthquake.
Currently, MCC Nepal supports work in two provinces: Province 1 (Morang District and Okhaldhunga District) and Province 3 (Dhading District and Lalitpur District). An additional district, Ramechhap, is supported by MCC’s earthquake recovery project with the National Reconstruction Authority.
MCC shares God’s love and compassion for all by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice. MCC envisions communities worldwide in right relationship with God, one another and creation.
