Creating jobs after a crisis

In the year since a devastating earthquake struck Nepal, we’ve provided 481,900 people with life-saving aid, and helped thousands of people rebuild their communities through ‘cash for work’ projects. By paying people to tackle a range of jobs, from debris clearing and road repairs to rebuilding irrigation systems for crops, we’re helping entire communities rebuild shattered lives, giving people hope over despair. More than 20,000 households in Nepal have now benefitted from these ‘cash for work’ schemes.
