Despite we were busy in streamlining our internal management, SIDS managed to achieve a good progress in programme delivery. Following are the summary of achievements made during the years of implementations:

Water Supply

CODEC is a local NGO based in Nuwakot and has been affiliated with SIDS since its inception. SIDS has been playing a pivotal role in providing technical guidance for the programme formulation and implementation in Nuwakot district.

SIDS, with the funds provided by NEWAH CRO has implemented a school sanitation and hygiene education programme in Narayan Jana Madhyamik Vidhyalaya, Machhegaun VDC-5 Kathmandu. Under this programme, SIDS built a school latrine and drinking water taps in the school. Total 374 people including 135 boys, 216 girls, 23 teachers and other staffs are benefited from the programme. Prior to handover of the latrine to the school, a child club was formed. Basic knowledge on health and sanitation awareness was also provided through the child club.


Family welfare programme was conducted with the financial assistance of CEDPA Nepal since July 1992 to June 1996 and since June 1996 to December 1996, with the financial assistance of CODEC itself. The programme was launched in two VDCs, Taruka and Budhasing. 5,000 people have been directly benefited.

Various other income generating activities have been implemented in Budhasing VDC -3, of Nuwakot. Eighty people participated in income generation activities. They purchased goats, pigs, and cocks for earning money. CODEC has provided funds in the recommendation of women saving groups and has also provided funds in its own initiation in the community. CODEC has circulating funds of Rs 50,000.00 and is trying to increase more funds.


As envisioned in its mission, SIDS intends to establish long term partnerships will all partners at all level, which include donor community, partner organizations, local NGOs, community and various saving and credit groups. SIDS believes that this is the basis to produce synergic results in order to sustain the development activities.

CODEC is the first local NGO based in Nuwakot who have established partnership with SIDS and became the first local organization to be affiliated with SIDS. SIDS has already extended technical guidance to CODEC in some of the projects. Both SIDS and CODEC have been benefited with the partnership. Some other NGOs are in touch with SIDS for affiliation with SIDS and to establish partnerships. SIDS has also approached various donor agencies for partnership.
