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 Earthquake of April 25th 2015, our focus is centered on helping the affected communities of Gorkha.
Nepal is a country of breath-taking natural beauty and a deeply spiritual social environment. But its turbulent history and political and socio-economic instability has left 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 to the improvement of the situation.
A number of guests who trekked with Prem Khatry over the years expressed their concern regarding the degraded living conditions of Arupokhari. One prominent person was the Australian national Allan J. Waldon who met Prem as his trekking guide in 2006. The duo remained in regular contact and their professional rapport soon turned into a friendship. The second time around when Allan visited Nepal, he got the opportunity to visit Prem’s village in Gorkha and was also informed of the hardships and greater challenges faced by the common Nepalese in the region. The education sector, among others, required immediate attention, given the absence of the government’s reach, resulting in worn-out buildings and a lack of proper resources, including qualified teachers.
Prem and Allan discussed possible ways to better the situation; subsequently, Sambhav Nepal was founded the same year in collaboration with Richard Jackson, also from Australia and a member of the Rotary Club of Wahroonga – Sydney. Though the initial supporters are from Australia, we do have by now contribution and support from other countries like the United States of America, Switzerland, Germany, Israel and various rotary clubs. The team is dedicated to helping the rural communities while continue searching for worldwide channels and opportunities to receive help.

Sambhav Nepal’s board members hail from Gorkha district. The team is led by Mr. Prem K Khatry, native of Gorkha and the Managing Director of Ace the Himalaya and Ace Holidays. He possesses wide knowledge and has experience of leading various social organizations. Formerly he was the Chairman of Arupokhari Society and a Board Member of Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal (TAAN). Currently he is involved as the board member of the Rotary Club of Mt. Everest. He has been recognized as MPHF + 2 (Multiple Paul Harris Fellow) by the Rotary International.
Sambhav team is working closely together with the local community as well as the domestic and the international donors to bring developmental projects to the backward region of Gorkha. We have witnessed and more often than not, experienced firsthand, the hardships and other socio-economic issues that have impeded the prospects of growth. We are committed to deliver continued support to accomplish our goals for safeguarding the future of the children and the nation.
Generally we are the ordinary people ranging from a butcher to a small and large business operator and a financial adviser to a Rotarian. Everyone has one thing in common – uniting to realize the importance and contribution of the Sambhav Nepal Foundation for making a difference in the world where it is most needed. We collaborate with individuals, business owners, schools, universities, hospitals, sporting and church groups, along with those that have a desire to commit to a noble cause. Through our guidance, we strive to help children learn to be proud of who they are and what they can achieve.
