Approaches of SIDC- Humla
Right based approach is one of the best learning of SIDC- Humla in past fifteen year’s continuous working in social fields.

Empowerment of target groups, increase in access and control to resources , multi partnership are key areas, where SIDC- Humla is continuously working. To achieve this, multi partnership is essential and we believe in this approach. To address local level issues, local level institutions, VDC, DDC, NGOs and government agencies are brought together for partnership.

Institutional Development | Empowerment
Human being could be talented and educated if he/she gets opportunity. For that everyone needs training and coaching .Education and awareness are two different part of life. Even if well educated people need training for upgrading their knowledge. On the other hand, almost part of the country belongs to remotest area. We go more remote, get more illiterate people. Similarly, majority of people, live in Humla are uneducated and illiterate, deprived of facilities. Out of them, the number of female is high than male as a result, people are depended to government and NGO. To change their behavior, uplift them socially, economically is so challenging by providing only aids. They have no proper knowledge of mobilizing & utilizing the aids or empowerment and institutional development is needed where as Government agencies have limited human resource for providing service.
