Namsaling Community Development Centre

Self-Reliant, Equitable
& Inclusive Society

Namsaling Community Development Centre (NCDC) is a non governmental, non-profit making organization founded in 1984 to facilitate initiatives in community self- reliance.

Officially registered in Ilam District Administration Office and affiliated with the Social Welfare Council (SWC), NCDC works in partnership with community members and organizations, local and central governments, other Nepali NGOs, and international partners.

Governed by an eleven member, independent, publicly elected executive board, its mandate is to promote community self reliance by mobilizing collective action toward sustainable livelihoods.

Started from Namsaling, at present it has been working in eastern hills as a leading NGO in eastern region of Nepal. The credit for the firm footing of NCDC goes to its dedicated members, communities, and different donors.
