Mission

Mercy Corps' programs are market-driven and community-led. Mercy Corps' conceptual framework - the Vision for Change - emphasizes the importance of public, private and civic sector partnerships in boosting accountability, participation, and peaceful change, thereby leading to more secure, productive and just communities.

Disaster Reduction Goal

Mercy Corps Nepal works with partners at the community, school, VDC and district levels to support disaster preparedness, early warning systems, mitigation works, and response capacity. Where local response capacity is overwhelmed, Mercy Corps also supports emergency relief services as resources permit. Disaster risk reduction is also closely linked to climate change adaptation.
