About the Nepal Trust

The Nepal Trust was founded in 1993 by Scottish businessman and ex British-Indian Army Major, Alan Jacobsen, who had served alongside Nepalese Ghurkas in WWII.

The Nepal Trust is a registered Scottish charity (SC022552) and Non Governmental Organization (NGO) in Nepal. The Trust has offices in Glasgow, Scotland and locally in Simikot (Humla district) and Kathmandu, Nepal.

We work in one of the most impoverished and remote areas of human habitation in the world, the upper Karnali river zone of North-West Nepal.
