WHO WE WORK WITH
On-the-ground partners ensure rightful allocation of funds and support
To maximise the effect of the funds collected by CHANCE for NEPAL, the charity works closely with a family of carefully selected organisations working on the ground in Nepal. These organisations guarantee that CHANCE’s donations reach those who most need it – and they also provide feedback and recommend follow-up action too.
Christened ‘the ears and eyes of CHANCE for NEPAL’ by CHANCE’s founder Barbara Datson, SHENPEN was founded in 2004 by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche so that ‘All poor and disadvantaged people of Nepal enjoy good health and a sound education and financial security and are able to meet their full human and spiritual needs.’ A volunteer-based, non profit organisation aimed at alleviating poverty, SHENPEN is run by Westerners who live and work in Nepal.
