Food security is a priority program for Nepal. Volunteers work with communities, focusing mainly on promotion of agriculture production, organic farming, construction of improved cookstoves, and fruit tree propagation. A project advisory committee (PAC) has been created comprised of all project stakeholders. The PAC helps to ensure that the project is relevant, meeting a need in Nepal, and that the training is credible, realistic, and responsive to the needs of Volunteers. Partners, including Nepal ministry and department officials, will carry out monitoring of Volunteers work periodically, and provide strategic input for the improvement of the food security project.
