Helvetas Nepal is one of the decentralized country programs of Helvetas, and has been operating in Nepal under an agreement with the Government of Nepal since 1956. It implements its programs and projects throughout the country, cooperating with many technical and social organisations. Through its work at both local and national levels, Helvetas Nepal supports activities leading to sustainable development and poverty reduction. It aims at creating environments in which people have new choices and become equipped with new skills and abilities to improve their livelihoods.
Helvetas Nepal partners with local and national non-governmental organisations, private sector entities, and local and national government bodies. It promotes the principles of decentralization and subsidiarity in decision making, implementation and accountability for development.
Helvetas is committed to a just world in which all men and women determine the course of their lives in dignity and security, using environmental resources in a sustainable manner. Helvetas is an independent organization for development based in Switzerland with affiliated organizations in Germany and the United States. Helvetas supports poor and disadvantaged women, men and communities in about thirty developing and transition countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe.
Together with our partners Helvetas tackles the global challenges at various levels: with projects on the ground, with expert advice and by advocating for conducive framework conditions benefiting the poor. This triple commitment is empowering people and transforming lives. Helvetas follows a multi-stakeholder approach by linking civil society actors, governments and private sector.
