Who we are

Sambhav Nepal’s mission is to achieve grassroots reforms in education, poverty, health and sanitation, empowerment of women, various youth clubs, vocational skills and training programs so as to uplift the living condition of the people of the rural communities of Gorkha.

After the April 25 Earthquake, our focus is centered on helping the affected communities of Gorkha.

In spite of its breath-taking beauty and a deeply spiritual social environment, Nepal has a turbulent history of political and socio-economic instability, leaving a significant portion of the population below the poverty line. The sad reality has touched the hearts of many tourists and led them to contribute personally for the improvement of the situation.

About Gorkha

Situated on the North-central part of Nepal, the Gorkha district hosts a very significant historical and political identity. The district capital, Gorkha Bazaar, is about 140kms west of Kathmandu at an altitude of 1,135m. Gorkha’s centerpiece is the magnificent Gorkha Durbar with a fort, a palace and a temple with excellent views of the surrounding valleys, and the Manaslu range.

The history of modern Nepal started some 200 years ago from the Gorkha district, when King Prithivi Narayan Shah conquered 22 small kingdoms and created the Nepal as we know today. His legacy passed on to his successors who kept foreign occupation at bay. The formidable courage and bravery earned the Gorkha soldiers great respect among the East India Company (British regime in India), who knew the Nepalese soldiers as the Gurkhas.
