About MCC Nepal

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.  Through our partners, we support work that responds to the priorities of local communities, promotes inclusion of women and discriminated groups, cares for the environment, and offers access to quality education, health services, and sustainable livelihoods.

Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) has a presence in over 60 countries globally, with a mission to share God’s love and compassion for all by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice.  MCC began sending volunteers to Nepal in 1956, initially seconding engineers, teachers and medical professionals through the United Mission to Nepal.  In 2009, MCC Nepal registered with the Government of Nepal’s Social Welfare Council (SWC) and began directly supporting local partner organizations.  Through an agreement with the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA), MCC also supported an extensive 3-year earthquake response through 2019.

Strategic Directions for 2020-2025

  • Increase the capacity of partners as they support and equip vulnerable people, especially people who have been uprooted and displaced.
  • Increase peacebuilding as a key component in all of our relief and development work and expand our efforts for justice and peace.
  • Design and assess MCC’s program and operations in light of our commitment to care for creation and accompany marginalized communities harmed by climate change.
