We are the official charity partner of the Brigade of Gurkhas.
The Brigade supports us in many ways but particularly in various fundraising activities throughout the year.
The MOD is a key partner, allowing us access to MOD facilities in Nepal as well as providing an annual grant to ensure that the Trust’s administrative overheads are offset and kept to a minimum.
Since 1989, The Gurkha Welfare Trust and the UK’s aid and development arm, formerly DFID, but now part of the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office have developed a programme providing safe drinking water supplies and sanitation schemes in remote villages in Nepal. This collaboration continues and has developed to include assisting local communities with their preparedness for natural disasters.
The Gurkha Welfare Trust has a long association with The Gurkha Museum, based in Winchester. The Museum tells the Gurkhas' rich history through a fascinating collection of displays and artefacts.
The Trust works in partnership with the Kadoorie Charitable Foundation's Nepal field team – the Kadoorie Agricultural Aid Association (KAAA) – which also has a close relationship with British Gurkhas Nepal.
We partner with the CAIRN Trust to provide libraries and librarian and teacher training as part of our model school programme across Nepal.
Each year, we collaborate with Oxfam on Trailwalker – one of the biggest challenge events of the year. Funds raised are split between the two charities.
The Gurkha Welfare Trust Jersey raises charitable funds for The Gurkha Welfare Trust, supported by the Jersey Overseas Aid Commission. Founded in 2014, they have worked tirelessly to raise funds for community and water projects which improve the lives of Gurkhas, their families, and their villages across Nepal.
The Soldiers’ Charity is a national charity of the British Army and works with the Trust to deliver welfare for ex-Gurkhas who live in the UK.
SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has been providing practical, emotional, and financial support to our Armed Forces and their families since 1885. SSAFA works with the Trust to deliver welfare for ex-Gurkhas who live in the UK.
