Upon completion of the Global Peace Exchange Nepal Development Project 2014, GPE at Birmingham-Southern College and Florida State University teamed up together and aided Clinic Nepal to write a grant to enter the Diehl Family Social Enterprise Competition. Few months later Clinic Nepal became a Deihl Family Social Enterprise Competition finalist and received a fifty-thousand dollar grant to build “Meghauli Marketplace: aka. Multipurpose Building”.
Clinic Nepal then immediately started developing a village marketplace to bring together a capable community of local farmers and entrepreneurs and give them the visibility they need among the large village development committee. Two years later, Clinic Nepal proudly announced the completion of the Project on November 9th, 2017. The Multipurpose Building will provide a place for people to share new and innovative technologies, products, and ideas, creating long term economic benefits for the community.
Special Thank You to everyone who contributed and supported this project! Dhanyabhad!
A privately funded competition in partnership with Florida State University is providing a valuable boost to 11 innovative business ventures designed to address problems in communities across the U.S. and the world. The competition, established in January 2013 through a two-year grant from the Ohio-based William and Helen Diehl Family Foundation, also gives a boost to Florida State University’s ongoing initiative to position itself as a national leader in developing students as entrepreneurs and innovators.
