Deputy Project Lead
ISAP - Institution for Suitable Actions for Prosperity

ISAP is a non-for-profit organization established in 2013 with the goal of catalyzing prosperity of resource-poor people. We believe that people are held back by various constraints such as lack of skills, social-capital, access to resources, quality educational opportunities, basic services (eg water supply). By unshackling them from their constrains, we hope to catalyze their development process enabling them to exploit other resources and opportunities consequently enhancing their standard of living. 

ISAP is led by a young team in their late twenties striving to innovate the way development sector works in Nepal. Currently, we are working to improve the agriculture income of about 450 farmers living in the Chautara-Dolalghat road corridor through fresh vegetable production and marketing through a JICA funded project. In 18 months, we raised the income of farmers by 61%. We are constructing 13 gravity flow water supply systems, researching on cognitive ability of illiterate population in partnership with a professor from Harvard University, conducting design thinking workshops with Lingnan Univeristy (HK).
