OVERVIEW

We believe that we can save more lives

The one decade long armed conflict in Nepal was ended with Peace Agreement in November 2006. Due to the conflict, the socio-economic sector was suffering most and, consequently, the rural women and vulnerable children were bearing all the loads in their shoulders which were already overloaded in fetching way outs for day-to-day basic needs.


Some people residing in DFW metroplex of Texas, USA liked to contribute in the post conflict activities like peace building and social empowerment in Nepal. So, they initiated registration process to establish a non-profit organization and start helping needy people in organized way. Thus, this organization bearing “Development for Peace” as its name and 501 C (3) status came to existence in 2007.
