How it started

Prem K Khatry, a native of Gorkha district, was guiding Allan Waldon, from Sydney, on his trekking expedition to Kala Patthar and Everest Base Camp in 2006.

During this trek, Allan noticed the immediate need for school renovations in many places. While conversing about it, Prem explained how the condition of schools and education was in his own village Ratmate.

Prem knew and had faced the hardships of walking long hours every day to get to school. Even at the age of 8, he used to walk 4 hours a day, down to the local market and back up to his home. Such was and still is to a great extent, the everyday story of many children of Arupokhari. Allan was moved by this grim situation that was the harsh reality of much of Nepal. The duo had already become close friends, and after much brainstorming, while hiking to Kala Patthar, they mulled the possibility to serve the society by establishing an organization. Sambhav Nepal should be its name, thinking everything is possible. In Nepali language, “Sambhav” means “possible”. The duo worked hard and believed each other for its possibilities.

From school renovations to establishing health posts, the organization would address the most pressing needs of the society. With the long term view of significantly improving the neglected remote communities of Gorkha, Sambhav Nepal was conceived.
