We enable Gurkha veterans, their families and their wider communities to live their lives with dignity in Nepal.
Gurkhas are traditionally recruited from the hill people of Nepal, with roots right back to an 8th century Hindu warrior.
Back in 2017, ex-Gurkha Captain Bishnu Bahadur Singh was approaching his 50th Birthday... Instead of asking for gifts, Bishnu came up with an idea to give back to the Gurkhas – and put together a plan to do so in a truly remarkable way.
Of the 4,500+ Gurkha veterans and widows we support with a Welfare Pension in Nepal, well over 200 of them are over 95 years old. We believe that the title of the oldest Gurkha in Nepal belongs to Lance Naik Lal Bahadur Gurung.
Organised in partnership with Oxfam, Trailwalker is the ultimate in long-distance challenges. Teams of four will take on an unforgettable 100km journey.
