Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. Over half the population live on $3 a day or less. Many families often need to walk for hours to reach basic services like safe water, health care and schools. With the ongoing support of New Zealanders, we’re working to change this and transform lives in the Everest region.
We have been working to improve access to healthcare for communities in the Everest region for over 60 years.
We improve access to safe water in remote mountain villages , improving health for whole communities for years to come.
We provide scholarships for young people to develop the next generation of leaders, teachers and health workers. We also provide scholarships for children of the victims of the avalanche that struck Everest in 2014.
We work to improve the education in the Everest region by training teachers and providing school resources.
