The Nepal Trust

About the organisation:

The Nepal Trust has been operating in the ‘Hidden Himalayas’ (the remote North Western corner of Nepal) for almost 20 years. Humla district is Nepal's remotest and most impoverished region with a population of 50000 people. There are no roads connecting to the outside world, access being only by foot or light aircraft to a small mountain airstrip in Simikot, the commercial centre. Our core programme is in Primary Healthcare but it is fully integrated with our other project areas including Renewable Energy, Education, Income Generation, Heritage Preservation and Agriculture. We work collaboratively with the Nepal Government, local organisations and organisations from around the world. Unlike most other organisations we were allowed, and continued, to operate through a debilitating civil war which badly affected this part of nepal.
