GIZ Recovery Programme Nepal
Recovery Programme Nepal (RPN) provided both immediate humanitarian relief and longer-term support on livelihoods and resilience following the 2015 earthquake in the Kathmandu Valley.
Title: Junior Programme Advisor
Timeline: June-December 2016
Role: Recovery Programme Nepal (RPN) is an initiative of the German Development Agency to provide immediate humanitarian relief and longer-term support on livelihoods and resilience following the 2015 earthquake in the Kathmandu Valley, with a focus on women and girls.
With RPN, I was responsible for supporting monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) through field interviews, collecting data on specific initiatives, and tracking progress on project indicators. I travelled regularly to remote villages in the Kathmandu Valley to support needs assessments and vulnerability mapping.
I also led the writing and design of case studies on WASH and SRHR interventions as well as “Women for women”, an entrepreneurship and technical education program for women in remote communities, to raise awareness within GIZ about the project.
What I'm most proud of: In 2018, the case studies I created contributed directly to RPN being awarded third-place in the GIZ's global gender equality awards for its gender-responsive and in parts gender-transformative approach to relief, livelihood support, water security, food security, health, reconstruction and education interventions.
