Further, with the technical advice from Ex-President of World Rabbit Science Association, Prof Steven Lukefahr from Texas A & M University, we contributed to improve the nutrition status and livelihood of 50 earthquake affected families in Northern part of Kathmandu. The collaboration has been extended to support 40 families in the nearby area at two communities after the successful result from the first phase of our implementation. We work together with local farmers groups, cooperatives, NGOs and aspiring entrepreneurs to establish rabbit farming as a business opportunity in Nepal. Our work has been recognized with some prestigious awards in Nepal in 2014 as "Surya Nepal Asha Social Entrepreneurship Award" for supporting rural communities in Nepal to uplift their living standard. Further, various entrepreneurs have been successfully raising rabbits and earning income through selling it at the local markets or to our company.
