Our year in review
A look back at our work in Nepal last year
Every year we publish an Annual Review, in addition to our Annual Report and Accounts, to show our supporters what we’ve achieved over the last year. The following figures are taken from our Annual Review, which covers July 2019 – June 2020.
Our year in numbers
Supporting impoverished Gurkhas
We pay a Welfare Pension to thousands of impoverished Gurkha veterans or widows.
Last year, over 4,400 Gurkha veterans and widows, with an average age of 80 years-old, received a pension worth 11,500 Nepali Rupees per month.
There were 232 recipients of the Disability Support Grant. 420 received the Home Carer’s Allowance. Emergency Hardship Grants were awarded to 1,647 people, including home repair from flood and landslide damage.How we support impoverished Gurkhas

Clean water and sanitation for Nepali communities
Our water projects bring clean water and sanitation to remote communities in Nepal.

A brighter future for Nepali children
Our Schools Programme builds, repairs and improves schools in remote regions of Nepal and, in turn, provides access to education and a better future for Nepali children.
We built three major schools last year, worked on six building extensions, 32 refurbishments and two community centres.Our schools programme
Protecting Gurkha veterans and widows
It’s not if another earthquake hits Nepal, it’s when. Resilience for the next earthquake is central to our thinking.
Last year 110 new homes for vulnerable pensioners were completed. These homes offer a safer solution for some of our most vulnerable Gurkha veterans and widows.
