MAKWANPUR, Feb. 24: A Nepali NGO received an international award worth US$ 100,000.

Makawanpur-based Manahari Development Organization (NDO) received the UNEP Sasakawa Award-2010/11.

The award is given to two organizations working for poverty alleviation, environment conservation and social development sectors.

Another organization of Guatemala also received the award.

According to NDO coordinator Top Bahadur Shahi, Executive Director Khop Narayan Shrestha received the award in Nairobi of Kenya amidst a program on Wednesday.
