About

Himalayan Care Hands (HCH) is a Nepali non-government organisation,initially set us as a side project in 2011 by the founding members of Himalayan Leaders and friends from the travel and tourism industry, teachers, university professors and social workers.

Since 1989, the founding members of Himalayan Leaders have been involved in many social projects and were eagerly looking forward to an official structure. Several big projects have been already rolled out under the Himalayan Care Hands governance, among them the construction of a hospital in the Dolakha district, solar energy projects, earthquake relief or a new e-library.  

Himalayan Care Hands aims to achieve sustainable development in every project by concepts like empowerment, train the trainer and long term strategy forecasting to assure every project is self sustaining after three years.

We remind ourselves every day, that even the smallest of gifts, the smallest of help will have a huge impact on Nepali people.
