The Nepal Trust
Working with health, community development and hope in the ‘Hidden Himalayas’
The Nepal Trust’s main area of operation is the remote Humla district, the least developed area of Nepal. There are no roads and only basic infrastructures. Maternal and child mortality rates amongst the 45,000 inhabitants are some of the highest in the world. We are working to improve Health, Education and Community Infrastructure. 7 Health Posts have been built and equipped, each attached to a birthing centre to improve the survival rates of children and mothers. We also have a Health education programme.
A renewable energy network has been established throughout the region and a dedicated Service Centre set up to create local employment and ensure the continued supply of renewable energy for schools, mills and public facilities. In other areas, the Nepal Trust is involved in a partnership building 6 new schools together with work to restore infrastructure that will assist the mainly farming community still struggling to resume earning, and hence to restore hope and ambition after the devastating earthquake in 2015. The Nepal Trust’s newest priority is a Girls’ Hygiene project, which will provide essential supplies, and educate the community to reduce the traditional stigma associated with menstruation in Nepal.
Your gifts can provide equipment to protect mothers and babies during childbirth or help farmers affected by earthquakes to restore their livelihoods.
