MISSION STATEMENTPHPI’s aim is to empower communities in a culturally conscious way through; education, collaboration, environmental sustainability, accountability and creativity. Our primary objective is to empower through educational access and opportunities, and to maximize community potential by providing tools, resources and facilities needed for successful re-growth of Nepal.
OUR HISTORYWe began as a group of trekkers caught in the 7.9 Nepal earthquake who wanted to make a difference. Our team began delivering aid to villages shortly after the first earthquake and we supplied emergency shelter, essential foods and crucial medical supplies. Along with other projects, we completed our first school rebuild in February 2016 and hope to continue supporting rebuilding efforts and fostering the sustainable development of rural communities through education.
WHY USWe assess the needs of every community we enter to evaluate what is needed most and foremost, whether it be an educational center, survival materials, solar energy, a clean air initiative, water, anitation or more. We look to fill the gaps that larger NGO’s find difficult to access due to bureaucracy and logistics. As one of the least developed and poorest nations in the world, Nepal cannot do this without the support of people like you. If just 100 people contributed $200 to our campaign, we could enact life changing projects to those in need. Be the vehicle to enact powerful change. Be one of the 100, and donate to our projects today.
