Changing Lives in Nepal

Seven hours from the Nepalese capital city of Kathmandu, nursery owner Mr. Hari Gautam smiles, with tears in his eyes, overjoyed to see a man who helped him improve his nursery business five years prior. The man, Mr. Howard Prussack, a Winrock volunteer who has lent his time and expertise multiple times to help the Nepali people, was pleased to know that he made such a positive impact.

I received skills and knowledge from Mr. Howard. This is what made my business a success. It was really a life ‘turning point’ for me,” Mr. Gautam proudly states.

These are the interactions that make the USAID-funded Farmer-to-Farmer program so powerful.
