"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

The NGO KNUC was founded in 1983 and focusses mainly on women, adolescent girls and children issues. It has a long history of working in the region including running a rural hospital.

The Nursing Training Project is a part of an adolescent girls empowerment project that the NGO has undertaken. The project aims to train adolescent girls in nursing, so that they can have a sustainable source of income and at the same time work as health workers in the remote regions. The project was funded for its potential of income generation and improvement of health-care in the region involving community participation.

The project is expected to begin in summer 2006. The first progress report is expected by the end of 2006
