Our Team

NGTF works with local community village groups to bring real change directly to the people in the Himalaya most in need. We know the territory and where to intervene to create the greatest impact for the least cost—and everything we undertake has local buy-in. Our headquarters are based in Maharajgunj, Kathmandu, Nepal.

I have loved the the Himalayas, and the Nepalese people, for a very long time. When Tashi told me the appalling story of young girls being trafficked to India I knew something had to be done to stop it. My background is in education, and I have a strong belief in the power of education to change people’s lives, so when Tashi raised the suggestion of the Nepal Green Tara Foundation with me I was happy to do what ever I could to get the Foundation’s first school built. From this first school the Foundation has gone from strength to strength and has now educated hundreds of Nepalese children who are playing important roles within their own communities and beyond.
