Securing a brighter future for Nepal’s children

Ensuring equal access to education for all children living in remote communities in order to break the
illiteracy-poverty cycle.


Education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty, having a ripple effect of opportunity that impacts generations. Education enhances lives. It ends generational cycles of poverty and disadvantage and provides a foundation for sustainable development.


HDFA works with communities to enhance individual and community well-being and welfare by following a path of economic development that safeguards the welfare of future generations.


We work closely with communities to provide education on health issues and facilitate provision of healthcare services.

Our flagship undertaking is with the Ghunsa Village community. We aim to improve education standards for the local children, with healthcare and basic infrastructure improvements to enable this to occur, while being mindful of the need for both conservation and economic development.


Since 2016 we have been working with communities in the Indrawati region which borders Tibet seven hours north of Kathmandu. In this remote and poverty-stricken a part of Nepal, hit very hard by the 2015 earthquakes, we are helping to improve health and living standards so that families are strong enough to support their children’s education.

May 28, 2019

This week's arresting image of climbers queuing to summit Mount Everest is one of insanity. And in the context of a Nepal still devastated by the 2015 earthquake, we might ask whether the West's fascination with Nepal should be realigned.
