2016 was an action packed 12 months with the small volunteer board of CCF working on many fronts to achieve what initially looked to be impossible. With the help of donors, and many volunteers from both Nepal and the US, Conscious Connections Foundation confronted a huge, unexpected disaster and provided valuable services to help thousands overcome the devastating impact of the April 2015 earthquakes in Nepal. CCF delivered earthquake relief in addition to our “normal” work of providing rural health care and educational opportunities for children who otherwise would not be able to attend school. Together, with your help, we’ve done a lot!
This report marks the first installation in what will be an annual report describing the work undertaken by Conscious Connections Foundation over the course of the calendar year. Within is a history of the projects undertaken, a description of the impact they have had on the stakeholders involved, and a full description of the next steps which are being taken to ensure sustainability and efficacy of the programs.

Post-Earthquake Humanitarian Aid Final Evaluation Report
The purpose of this evaluation is to better understand the effectiveness of the disaster aid provided by CCF in Nepal. This information will be used to provide greater accountability to CCF stakeholders, including aid recipients, as well as to guide future organizational actions as the relief and rebuilding processes continue. Secondarily, the purpose of this research is to investigate the relationship between small-scale aid organizations such as CCF and larger International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGOs).
By analyzing both the learning-oriented, and accountability-oriented evaluations, CCF’s work and model was examined in the larger context of the overall relief process which has taken place in Nepal. The combination of this analysis along with similar evaluations of other humanitarian aid perspectives will demonstrate how CCF can become more efficient and effective in the future.
