1) Who we are?
The Nepal Trust is a registered Scottish Charity (SC022552) and Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) in Nepal dedicated to work together with communities of Nepal by responding to their needs for improved access to basic health, education, renewable energy, sustainable tourism, agriculture, water & sanitation and heritage preservation. The Nepal Trust contributes to this by strengthening the ability of disadvantaged communities to help themselves to improve their livelihoods.
2) Where we work?
Our main work area is Humla district, which is one of Nepal’s highest and the most inaccessible districts. Located in the far northwest it is arguably the most impoverished of Nepal’s 75 districts. This culturally unique and fragile Himalayan environment lies 440km NW of Kathmandu. Bordering Tibet, it can only be accessed by foot or light aircraft. For this reason, the area is often referred to as the ‘Hidden Himalayas’.
Other core areas include Kaski, Sindhupalchowk, Chitwan and Kapilvastu, although there are several projects in planning that will allow us to expand into other districts as well.
3) What we do?
The seven major practice areas of The Nepal Trust are:
- Primary Healthcare
- Renewable Energy
- Education & Literacy
- Culture & Heritage Preservation
- Food Security & Agricultural Development
- Sustainable Tourism – Social Enterprise & Business Development
- Water/ Sanitation/ Hygiene (WASH)
In addition the Nepal Trust sets up programs for volunteers to sustain projects on a cost effective basis & distribute specialized knowledge among its project areas.
