Nepalese porters and villagers carrying heavy loads on their backs across rocky and mountainous terrain everyday. After observing the hard work they go through, OHF Founder Mr Robert Kee came up with an invention called the Sherpa Stick that allows them to drag the load up and down the mountain, hence making life much easier.

Hope Trust Nepal
From a cramped 3 story building in crowded Kathmandu, our 42 HTN children will be moving to Pokhara, where the home is located on a scenic hill with cleaner air and a large premises enough to house up to 120 children. This means that the children will have a lot of space for activities and accommodation!

Rice Bag House
Rice bag houses are earthquake-resistant homes constructed of empty bags. The bags are easily transported to rural villages in Nepal – mostly in mountainous, hard to reach locations. They are then filled with earth and stacked upon each other, held together with barbed wire. The houses are plastered and a roof then added.
Young women in rural areas with low education are desperate to increase their income. Equipped with a sewing machine and tailoring skills, the women have an opportunity to supplement the family income, thereby increasing her status within the family. We work with certified instructors to teach a class of women sewing techniques over a period of 3-4 months.
We identified poor Nepal families and give them 7-10 goats each. We provide technical training on goat husbandry and a 1-month supply of feed to get started.
We identified poor Nepal families to provide technical training on poultry farming. These families are given 200 to 400 chicks, together with a one month supply of feed. The additional income this has provided improved the villagers’ lifestyle and some are even able to grow their chicken coop from the initial 200 chicks to 1,500 chicks.
Computer knowledge is a must for everyone without any exemption, however such classes are not available in rural villagers. This project provided computer basics to 500 rural underprivileged school children and young adults. Most importantly, the classes are held near where they lived making it convenient for them to attend. Learning about computers has opened up doors to getting a decent job.
