Welcome to Sambhav Nepal !

Sambhav Nepal is a registered non-profit and non-political social organization aiming to establish and implement sustainable education, health, drinking water and community development programs in the rural areas of Nepal. Currently, the organization is working to rebuild schools and houses and drinking water supply systems destroyed by the earthquakes of April 25 and May 12, 2015 in Gorkha district.


How It Started
In a trip to Everest Base Camp in 2006, guide Prem K Khatry met Australian citizen Allan Waldon. They became friends and started brainstorming ideas to help the backward communities of Nepal. So, in 2007, Prem established Sambhav Nepal with the help of Allan. In Nepali language, Sambhav means possible. Read more…

Community School Support
The first project of Sambhav Nepal was the assistance to Bhairabi Primary School. We repaired its physical infrastructure and provided stationeries. Today it is the fully supported school by Sambhav Nepal. In addition, we have helped various community schools by renovating structures, sponsoring education for underprivileged children, upgrading libraries, donating computers, reconstructing toilets and furnishing hostels.

Volunteering
Sambhav Nepal organizes volunteering activities in villages. The first batch of volunteers came from University of New South Wales, Australia in 2011. In 2012 we also received volunteers from St Augustine’s College, Sydney. Since then the students from these educational institutions have been regularly coming to Nepal to volunteer.

Teacher Training Program
In 2009, we conducted the first training in Dharapani Secondary School in collaboration with Australian Rotary Team. Since then, we run such training program almost every year to equip community school teachers with modern learning tools and techniques.

Earthquake Relief and Rebuild
As earthquake relief, so far we have distributed 36,600 kg of food supplies, 3,720 aluminum roofing sheets to 12 community schools and 220 blankets in the affected villages of Gorkha district. We also have long-term rebuild projects. Under the ongoing Rebuild Home Gorkha, we plan to rebuild at least 100 houses in 4 VDCs. With our school-rebuilding project, we aim to reconstruct 35 affected schools. In its initial phase, the construction of 5 schools has already started. And we are also rebuilding 4 drinking water supply systems.


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!
