Our Social Work

The core value of the people in the rural area is to elevate their social economic condition through self-reliance and conscious schemes. This movement should entail coming from the people’s desires to meet their needs and determine their own destinies through the principle “of the people, by the people, for the people”. The distribution of social security, healthcare and nutrition, education and educational services, saving the environment, drinking water and sanitation play a major role to elevate the socio-economic condition of the targeted community. On top of that lifelong learning skills play a vital role in their entire life. It is how by joining hands from the people to the people the socio-economic of the grass root level can be uplifted.

Education

An old grand mom told me, "I solve word problems by counting with my fingers, I give homemade medicine to provide relief from sickness, but I cannot read nor write " The modern calculator to solve commercial problems has ten single digits to make numerals just like grand mom used ten fingers. Is there logic behind this to make mathematical education? She gave educative advice to her family members too. Is that not education? But with the change of time in literacy rate, education is regarded as acquiring knowledge and skills formally at school/s or organization/s by the teaching and learning process, leading to a lifelong learning. The person who obtained knowledge and skills by this process is called an educated person. Education is therefore regarded normally where there is higher literacy rate. Do the children receive more education at home in their early age? Are parents the first teachers for their children? Is this the natural way of teaching children? Through culture, body language, manner, religion and so on? Maybe heavily laden cultural divergence and social education depends on cultural psychology. To some extent, NHRC believes in educating people through the natural ways and instilling cultural psychology in formal education.

Lifelong learning skills

The change to an easy life is an opportunity provided to all of us. Get inspired to change the life style pattern into simple living and high thinking. Learn a simple action or skill that changes the lives of everyone, never stop learning new things and adapting to the changing world. Selection has been made from many to a few by definitive means – computer education and English language. One of the ways to do this is during post–exam time, by sending unprepared students to the world of technology for their career making. In the 21 st century, people need computers and the English language to communicate, find important information and perform the most basic of tasks. We welcome everyone to participate, step up to help and be helped in the package work. This initiative guides and encourages the youth of Nepal to live more sustainably in the lifelong learning scheme.

Agriculture

Lately, I experienced that green leafy vegetables were being sold by weight. I never experienced this in Nepal, green leafy vegetables being sold by weight. The shop keeper replied to my question that the price of leafy vegetables had gone up because of hail stone damage in the vegetables farms in the outskirts of the valley. This is a challenge for me - whether I stop eating green leafy vegetable or pay more for it. To keep sustainable livelihood, it is debatable whether to keep on or to stop. One of the UN Sustainable Development Goals has stated that how we grow, share and consume our food among ourselves.They also added further that the food and agriculture sector offers key solutions for development, and is central for hunger and poverty eradication. We cannot avoid risks associated disasters; however, we need to keep going by doing more than less. NHRC believes to raise the life style of the targeted people by asking questions:
 Why do we produce food?
 How do we produce food?
 Who do we produce food to?

Drinking Water

The voice of UN Sustainable Development Goals is "Clean, accessible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in. There is sufficient fresh water on the planet to achieve this. But due to bad economics or poor infrastructure, every year millions of people, most of them children, die from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene. Water scarcity, poor water quality and inadequate sanitation negatively impact food security, livelihood choices and educational opportunities for poor families across the world. Drought afflicts some of the world’s poorest countries, worsening hunger and malnutrition.

Human Rights

Basically human rights are meant for human beings to satisfy their basic needs. According to the Oxford Power Dictionary (1993), human rights are as the "basic freedom that all people should have". In another way to express human rights, right to fulfillment of basic human needs like food, shelter, clothing, health and sanitation, earning one’s live-hood and the like. It is regarded as right to equality and the right to life and personal liberty, right to food, health and adequate standard of living. NHRC tries to look into the violation of Human Rights. The organization further keeps the policy, "to equality of opportunity for all including those belonging to the weaker and disadvantaged section of the ‘Society in the nature of Protective discrimination”.

Medical Care and Nutrition

Medical care covers the health care with regular check up and gives treatment by the professional to the community. NHRC is an organisation established to meet the health needs of targeted populations. We all ages have right to live healthy and promoting the well-being in our daily life. To sustain life healthier, good nutrition is required. A nutrition include preparation of food and storage methods that preserve nutrients from oxidation, heat or leaching, and that reduce risk of foodborne illness. In addition, quality controlled food need to be distributed in the market. Contaminated supply brings variety of unexpected diseases in the community. Apart from this, clean water supply is to bring in the required place. However, many more efforts are needed to fully eradicate a wide range of diseases and address many different persistent and emerging health issues. To keep alive and it should not be forgotten "health is wealth" in the community.
