How we work

Sambhav Nepal is a legally registered NGO and affiliated with the Social Welfare Council (SWC) of Nepal. We approach domestic and international donors to fund our projects in different remote villages in Nepal.

Prior to the commencement of a project, Sambhav Nepal is required to prepare a formal proposal on state-based guidelines. We then submit the proposal to SWC and other concerned government authorities. Once they approve the proposal, the management committee of Sambhav Nepal is required to document the details of all expenditures in writing. The progress report is submitted to the donors, SWC and all the concerned parties on a regular basis. We focus on the local community to have a wider impact on the lives of the children and families deprived of basic needs.

All the projects are filed and monitored by the SWC and local government authorities after its completion. Rural Municipality Office, District Cooperation Committee and other concerned government authorities in Gorkha are aware of our activities and issue all necessary formal credentials for Sambhav Nepal to undertake the projects. The annual audit report of Sambhav Nepal is submitted to Social Welfare Council, Inland Revenue Department and District Cooperation Committee in Kathmandu.

Currently, we are working to improve the health and education sector in Gorkha district. Although we aim to cover the entire district, our main focus in on Sub-region B of Constituency 1 of Gorkha district. This sub-region includes Tsum Nubri, Dharche, Arughat and Bhimsen Rural Municipalities. Usually when we have covered these rural municipalities, we move onto Sub-region A of Constituency 1 and then finally, if funding is available, move to Constituency 2 of Gorkha. Our main focus after the 2015 Nepal Earthquake has been on rebuilding, so we are making better modern houses for the earthquake victims (Our final goal is 108 houses). We work on women’s empowerment, youth development, income-generating activities, etc. We are also planning to extend our helping hands to more areas. As the organization has grown in size, especially after the start of Sambhav Nepal – Schweiz in Switzerland by Melanie Kreuzer, the responsibilities have increased significantly. Our goal is about transforming the mountain communities of Nepal for their betterment. We aim to provide sustainable systems, quality resources and new growth within this area, and continually monitor each project during and after completion. Our focus is a constant support to fund, maintain, employ and manage what it has created. We do not believe in walking away after the completion of a project; the major task and challenge is to bring the facility into smooth and effective operation and ensure that any potential problems (logistical, financial or otherwise) are well dealt with.

This is a remarkable aspect of our organization that all the team members, in both Nepal and Switzerland, contribute their endless time, skills, labour, patience and knowledge to materialize our concepts of community development. The majority of the members are from the local villages where our work is based and while the others have huge experience in this field, thus creating an encouraging environment to work in.
