Welcome to Development Project Service Center (DEPROSC) Nepal

Building

DEPROSC - Nepal, is one the leading non-government, not for profit, development organizations in Nepal. It was established on 26 September 1993 under "Association Registration act 1978". It is affiliated to Social Welfare Council (SWC) and is receiving approvals from SWC for foreign aid mobilization. DEPROSC-Nepal has its Central Office in Thapathli, Kathmandu, Nepal and two regional offices, one each in Biratnagar (Eastern region) and Nepalgunj (Mid- and Far western region).

Our main thirst is the poverty reduction in Nepal and we have an integrated approach for it. That’s why we cover several thematic areas. Until now, we have served in 55 districts of the country at different times and served more than 300,000 families of different ethnicities and geography.

DEPROSC enjoys goodwill and recognition by the communities it has served. Its approaches are: pro-poor, participation, coordination, inclusion, transparency, accountability and neutrality. We have seen thousands of Nepalese families coming out of poverty out of our livelihood interventions and it gives impetus to us. We have special fascination towards geographically and socially excluded, marginalized and discriminated populations.

In addition to implementing projects, DEPROSC is willing to engage further in advocacy and lobbying national and international levels in order to secure livelihood and social justice to the disadvantaged communities.

From 1995-2015, DEPROSC was also engaged in promoting microfinance in Nepal from Central Bank’s permission. As a result, it closely worked with around 50,000 families and delivered microfinance services including direct lending, consequently, two national level micro finance banks were promoted from this initiation. In addition, DEPROSC contribution is significant in construction/rehabilitation of community infrastructures, facilitation to take over government fallow land by communities for cultivation and vegetation, linking of agriculture producers with city markets, engaging in all major disasters after 2000 A.D. including insurgency.
