Mondo in Nepal

In Nepal, our projects are handled by a local NGO; Helambu Education and Livelihood Partnership (HELP) headed by our country manager, Jimmy Lama. HELP has a small-dedicated team governed by local residents and an advisory committee of Nepalese education experts.
Our focus in Nepal is to improve the quality of education at community run government schools in the rural villages of Sindupalchowk district

Providing desks, benches, whiteboards, blackboard chalk, books, stationery, school uniforms, school bags and other invaluable educational materials to ensure that students have the necessary resources to fulfil their potential.

Ensuring that students with potential have the resources to undertake higher education, whilst giving back to their communities by volunteering their time and applying their new skills.
Our Saathi teachers are highly motivated graduates who commit to working 2 years in deprived rural schools.  They are making a huge difference to the quality of education in remote areas.

Nepal Earthquakes 2015

Immediately after the devastating earthquakes in 2015, we delivered emergency supplies and shelter to 3,000 families in 32 villages and completed 205 Temporary Learning Centres in 42 villages in partnership with the Nepalese government enabling schooling to resume for 4,000 children.

In November 2015 we were awarded the prestigious Directory of Social Change Award for our work post-earthquake and are currently working with the Nepali Department of Education to help repair, rebuild and resource a number of schools in the valley.

Volunteer in Nepal

Volunteers have contributed to our programme from the outset and have been an invaluable resource in the energy, ideas and skills they bring. Since the earthquake in 2015, volunteers are an even more important part of our projects, helping to empower local communities and assisting in capacity building.

See how you can make a real difference to local communities by using your skills to train teachers, organise sporting events, survey building projects and much more!
