Established in 1999, HELP NEPAL Network is the largest charitable network launched by the Nepalese. Its underlying philosophy is to mobilise small contributions from the global Nepalese community to implement projects in health, education and emergency humanitarian relief.
“We meet our administrative costs through a separate administration fund and every penny we raise for charitable purpose is spent directly on the targeted programmes,” said Abhaya Shrestha of HeNN USA. “HeNN has already helped construct or renovate over 40 schools, over 40 libraries, deployed electronic libraries in various schools and is running a health post in the remote Mugu district. The construction of an orphanage in Dhulikhel of Kavre district is also in its final phase.” he added.
