Project Profile

Who we are

“Future Village” is a research and project-based NGO. The project was founded in mid-2004 by a group of enthusiastic visitors from Hong Kong, who raised fund to provide education, health and agricultural assistance to more than 700 residents of Katunge Village, 100 km north of the capital Kathmandu.

One of the founders of this NGO, Christie Lam, an anthropologist by profession started this volunteer-run NGO with just US$ 400. It was enough to buy a small piece of land in Nepal and eventually with the support from a number of donors a two-storey house was built, which now serves as the main office and offers accommodation to attract volunteers across the globe.

“Future Village” firmly believes that the participatory and empowering approach can help us better understand the local needs and achieve livelihood improvement in a sustainable way. We pursue three important steps to ensure the effectiveness of each program: research, project implementation (participatory and empowerment) and evaluation. Our main goals are

  • Reaching the poor through community development and local participation
  • Building capacity through project evaluation and transferring knowledge into action
  • Mainstreaming Anthronomics in the field of development research

Activities and Achievements

The “Future Village” conducts regular classes to teach village children English and provides basic health services to the poor. The project achievements include:

  • Sponsoring over 100 village kids for schooling
  • Sponsoring outstanding village kids to study in cities
  • Sponsoring 6 full time teachers
  • Providing free tutorial class regularly
  • Supporting Shree Jyanodaya School rebuild and upgrade projects (2011-2012 School Rebuild Project is launched, for details refer to the campaign pamphlet)
  • Providing access to clean drinking water to a population of over 700 villagers
  • Providing free health check and dental service to the villagers

What can visitors do to help?

Visitors can offer their service in our English classes which is held regularly for the children. Visitors can also offer free medical consultation services.

Collection and delivery of materials to Nepal: Future Village needs your help to deliver materials to Nepal. If you are planning a trip to Nepal, you can help to deliver the materials to us. Kindly contact Christie Lam if you need more information.

Donations: We welcome your donations to support our scheme.

The Story of Star Fish

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.

Approaching the boy, he asked, ‘What are you doing?’

The youth replied, ‘Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t t throw them back, they’ll die.’

‘Son,’ the man said, ‘don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish?

You can’t make a difference!’ After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said ‘I made a difference for that one.’
