Located in the Gorkha district, northern Nepal, the village of Arupokhari is in a rural setting with stunning views of the Himalayas. Despite its pristine beauty and serenity, the region faces a developmental setback due to dilapidated basic facilities and a lack of physical infrastructures.

Sambhav Nepal is a registered non-profit, non-political, social organization aiming to establish and implement sustainable education, health, and community development programs in isolated areas of Nepal. Presently, the organization is working in ten remote villages of the Gorkha district.
In the rural regions, it is difficult to find quality schools due to a lack of funding and development programs. Of the few existing ones, the poor are often unable to afford the high cost and are left out from receiving decent education. Besides education, our deep sense of commitment lies in improving the community health status, while seeking to alleviate the deficiency of Nepali people by providing high quality, accessible, preventive as well as curative health services. We believe all people, regardless of age, sex or profession, have the potential to succeed and we are committed to providing support and opportunities to those in need.
Whether sponsoring a child, funding a project or volunteering in the village - opportunities to lend a helping hand are endless. Your support reaches the most remote corners of the Himalayas and goes directly towards the projects for construction, renovation as well as refurbishment of the schools and the health posts in Gorkha. Join us and become a part of the Sambhav Nepal family. We are always eager to serve the society together!
