The Raptisonary Recovery Project is a two year project ending in late 2021, aiming for the future safeguarding and present-day economic recovery of this rural municipality of Banke District, in mid-western Nepal.
Partnering with the International Nepal Fellowship (INF), Anglican Aid is working to improve the efficiency, sufficiency and effectiveness of Disaster Risk Reduction Infrastructures (policies, planning and physical infrastructure) in the Raptisonary, to improve emergency and recovery responses in light of natural disasters in the region.
The project also aims to improve the economic situation of the local Madhesis and Tharus people groups. These communities are socially disadvantaged and struggling to recover from massive flooding in August 2017 which destroyed houses, crops and food stocks and impacted 50,000 people in the Banke district.
Parts of the Raptisonary area are particularly flood-prone. Commencing in late 2019, some programs are in progress though delayed by the impact of Covid-19, such as construction of water pumping and sanitation facilities (gender-friendly).
Economic recovery will increase the income of the family, and improve their access to education, health and nutrition, and community facilities.
