About Us

The AGH social foundation is a non profit making government registered organisation. It was established in 2010 and with the aid of dedicated volunteers strives constantly to improve the life chances of the poorest people in Nepal. To give some idea of the deprivation that exists especially in the mountains, 77% of the people of Nepal have to live on less than 2$ a day and in many rural areas farmers cannot manage to grow enough food to feed themselves for the complete year.

In western countries the state provides a safety net for the poorest in society. Here in Nepal that safety net does not exist so it is our mission to help the poorest in our society. The children in Nepal suffer greatly, infant mortality is particularly bad and those that survive suffer when food is scarce from malnutrition and sickness, often they have no parents to look after them. The short term answer lies in providing the communities with access to clean drinking water and the ability to improve their agriculture to reduce the food deficit so prevalent in the mountains.

Longer term the solution lies with educating the children and young people, so the foundation is particularly focused on helping them. Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world and because of this we want to give our children and young people the tools to build a better future, so they can help their own communities when they grow up and in that way make life better for all Nepalese people.
