Welcome to AwF-Nepal,

    The AwF-Nepal project was initiated in March 2008 with the partial support of
    Aquaculture Without Frontiers, UK. In the first phase (March 2008 - February 2010), the
    project was launched in Rainastar Village of Lamjung, which is the lowest part of the
    district adjacent to Gorkha. During the first phase, 70 women joined in two groups and
    constructed a pond each to grow fish in addition to traditionally growing vegetables and
    crops and raising livestock.

    After the successful launch of the project, under the second phase (April 2010 -
    Present),  a scale- up program has been started. The Project Team has completed the
    feasibility study of sites in the same district as well as in neighbouring districts; namely,
    Chakratirtha and Bhorletar VDCs of Lamjung, Putlikhet/Gaikhur in Gorkha, a
    mountaineous valley in Nawalparasi. Under this scale-up program, in addition to working
    with 100 families in groups, it is expected to create awareness in those districts.

    This project has been launched by Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand in
    collaboration with the Institute of Agriculture and Animal Science (IAAS), Rampur,
    Chitwan. More partners and volunteers are expected to join.
