Welcome to Development Project Service Center
DEPROSC, at present, is one the leading developmental NGOs in Nepal. It was established on 26 September 1993, when the political system allowed people organize and contribute for nation building. We have worked in different thematic in 54 districts of the country at different times and served around 250,000 families of different ethnicities and geography. Nepalese civil society sector or NGOs are considerably dependent on the donor community but DEPROSC has prepared some ground to continue its mission even during less external funding. We are aware of many challenges in development field along with ever rising aspirations of people. With consistent focus on its long term vision to empower rural Nepal, DEPROSC has worked through all those challenges and obstacles to ensure that the benefits of development reached onto the doors of every Nepali in need, concentrating mostly on geographically and socially excluded, marginalized and discriminated populations, through people centered development.
In the course of its journey of last 22 years, we have successfully implemented 77 development projects and 40 research projects in diverse disciplines such as: food security and sustainable livelihood, microfinance, education and empowerment, disaster and emergency response, WASH, rural community assets creation/rehabilitation and natural resource management. As our inclination has been to serve the communities in remote and to the population below poverty line with integrated approach of development, we have good exposures in livelihood and poverty dimensions in Nepal. With its effort to see empowered Nepal, DEPROSC is reviewing its strategies in the changing development contexts and needs of Nepal.
