Who We Are
Community Members Interested (COMMITTED), Nepal was conceptualized and created by Mr. Jayjeev Hada in the year 2004 in Virginia USA, as a 501 3(c), a not for profit company; with a goal to help Nepali communities living in the US and Nepal. Having extensive experience as an Urban Planner in the Fairfax County Planning and Zoning Department as well as the Fairfax County Public Schools, the immediate goal was to implement such innovative and pragmatic ideas in the local government services and education sectors of Nepal. This hope to create a better Nepal resulted in the establishment of COMMITTED in Kathmandu in the year 2006.
What We Do
In the first decade we received the opportunity to serve many diverse communities of Nepal – from the remote far west in Kanchanpur with our rainwater harvesting program, to fishery as a Social Business for Education (SBE) in the mountainous region of Sindhupalchowk, to School Improvement Programs (SIP) in the historic first girls’ school – Kanya Mandir located in Chettrapati, the heart of the capital city Kathmandu.
In the recent years, with the establishment of Local Government Operations Act 2017, COMMITTED has successfully partnered with The Asia Foundation in their Sub National Government Program to help eleven local municipalities in all seven provinces, build their dynamic digital GIS based municipal profile and data system, as well as develop the long range Comprehensive Plans and strengthen the Public Finance Management systems and processes for five municipalities, under the Local Governance and Service Delivery (LGSD) Programs.
Our Local Governance and Economic Development Programs ensure accountability, transparency and sustainable economic development models which help to boost the local community as well as improve their service delivery process. Similarly, our School Improvement Programs seek to provide poverty-stricken underprivileged children gain access to free, sustainable, mandatory, and quality education alongside making public schools self- sustaining through our Social Business for Education programs.
