ECARDS-Nepal Team

ECARDS Nepal is run through its general Assembly, which is the forum of all ECARDS-members which is generally held once a year. Then, the General Assembly forms an Executive Board/ Committee (EC) and this EC nominates some of the senior intellectuals as “Advisors” to the Committee. The Advisors do not have any management or administrative roles, rather they provide visionary guidance and other intellectual supports when required by the EC

Partnership principles, approaches and working strategies

ECARDS-Nepal always believes in multi-partnerships. Thus it does not like to be depended only one donor or partner. It seeks to develop partnerships with many like-minded partners and makes effort in reaching the disadvantaged societies, mostly in the remote and far-flung parts of the country.
