Village Alive is an exciting grassroots community development initiative from American Leprosy Missions, reduces poverty, increases education, and improves health and sanitation. Your partnership with Franklin First UMC will help transform the village of Dathora in Nepal, bringing hope and healing to people struggling with disease and despair.
The village of Dathora is located in central Nepal, a remote and mountainous region. In Nepal, the life expectancy at birth is only 63 years and the average will directly benefit more than 1,300 children, men and women. With your partnership, American Leprosy Missions will be able to come alongside these villagers and empower them to fight poverty and disease by improving nutrition, farming and animal husbandry practices, education, women’s rights and sanitation through local self help groups.
