A volunteer organization

Before Chhimeki was established, the Urban Nutrition Project (UNP) of Terre des hommes Foundation (Tdh) was implemented through a local NGO called Sagun. With the active support of Terre des hommes the project significantly grew over the years in terms of capacity and reach, with a geographical expansion into 11 wards across Kathmandu Metropolitan City, a growing numbers of volunteers, the hiring of additional staff and improved community participation. During the phased out period, Sagun, Tdh and trained volunteers decided to continue the great work Sagun was doing by establishing Chhimeki. From 2001 to 2004 volunteers were trained through Sagun but after the establishment of Chhimeki in December 2004, volunteers were continuously trained through Chhimeki.
