How Helvetas Supports People in Nepal

Helvetas launched its first projects in 1956 in Nepal. Our operations have since expanded to include everything from vocational training to building bridges and reducing disaster-related risks.


The most vulnerable communities suffer from dirty and scarce water. Annually we help up to 500,000 people get new access to drinking water and basic sanitation.

Rural Access

Lack of transport infrastructure makes it impossible for the poor to escape the poverty trap. We help people get better access to markets, schools, and hospitals.

Environment and Climate Change

Every year, we support over 1,000,000 people adapt to climate change, reduce the risks of disasters, sustainably manage natural resources, and conserve nature.
