HDCS and IM Consultation Meeting
February 1, 2021
Carole Sydnor and I had a wonderful consultation meeting with the officers of the Human Development and Community Service, a faith-based NGO in Nepal. Its mission is to bring holistic transformation of life and community through education, health and community development. Executive Director Kapil Sharma shared how the staff of HDCS provided relief assistance to the most needy families during the pandemic. As the COVID situation is now improving, HDCS is focusing on its community development section through the Livelihood Development Project which seeks help women generate income and support their children’s schooling.
We also conducted an interview with the officers on Economic and Community Transformation Initiative, one of the Response to the Call strategic mission goals. It is fair to say that all the services of HDCS in its community development section are promoting economic and community development, especially for women and least served families and communities. HDCS is also looking for long term professionals to help in the education and health sectors of its schools and hospitals. Carole and I will have more virtual meetings with them to strengthen our partnership.
Carole and her husband Bucky are former missionaries of International Ministries (IM) serving in Nepal. Carole is currently IM Special Assistant for Nepal Relations.
