NAMASTE! WELCOME TO THE HIMALAYAS!!
Nepal is a beautiful and naturally gifted country. It is home to eight out of ten of the world’s highest peaks including Mount Everest and to the well-known Sherpa tribe. It is also a land of Hindus (80%+ population) and the birthplace of Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. It has rich cultural and natural heritages and the country hosts ten World Heritage Sites recognized by UNESCO. On the other hand, it is one of the world’s developing countries. One third of the population lives in extreme poverty. Education is the best way to transform the communities in rural Nepal. We work to promote children’s education, water sanitation and hygiene (WASH), to improve the livelihoods and living standards of the Himalayan nation.
WHO WE ARE

OUR WORKING DISTRICTS
We are based in Kathmandu the capital city of Nepal, and are focused on the central part of the country and some parts in west Nepal. We work primarily in Lalitpur, Dhading, Chitwan and Makwanpur districts. We also operate in Mahottari, Rautahat and Bara districts and are still exploring the possiblity of working in Sindhupalchowk and Rasuwa. We would like to bring aid to more needy communities.
Message from the Director
Greetings from the Himalayan nation of Nepal! Thank you for visiting our website. Nepal is one of the world’s developing countries, a country rich in hydroelectric power, with huge potential for tourism. However, one third of the population is suffering from extreme poverty. The country’s economy is still based on traditional agriculture. The unemployment rate is high and every day over a thousand Nepali workers have to go abroad to undertake manual labor. A great number of people in rural Nepal are uneducated or illiterate. In this scenario HTCD Nepal strives to bring change to the communities and equip the new generation with education, skills and competence. We work to prevent disease and promote health through safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene projects. HTCD Nepal appreciates all helping hands working together to bring a new dawn of change to the face of the Himalayas.
We would love to hear from you.
