Our History

The history of Hands for Help Nepal stands out as a fascinating narrative. In 1996, its founders, Anil Bhushal and Badri Rai, were engaged in unique roles as Nepali Language Trainers and Cultural Informants within a UK-based organization. This organization was responsible for sending young volunteers on GAP year missions to Nepal. The British organization hosted volunteers for educational and environmental programs lasting six months or more, spanning various regions of Nepal. Moreover, it coordinated summer programs with groups of volunteers.

The founders, Anil Bhushal and Badri Rai, maintained close relationships with international volunteers, some of whom had friends keen on short-term volunteering opportunities in Nepal. Unfortunately, due to strict regulations imposed by the hosting organization, they were unable to accommodate applications for short-term engagements.


Hands for Help Nepal is an officially recognized organization, holding valid registration with the District Administration Office of Kathmandu in accordance with the Society Act of 2034. Additionally, we maintain affiliation with the Social Welfare Council of Nepal. Furthermore, we are proud to have received official recognition from the Kathmandu Metropolitan Office and the District Development Office of Kathmandu.
