Health and Education Nepal

     

Bringing health, education and healing to the people of Nepal
in the name of Jesus!

Nepal is one of the world's poorest countries. With few natural resources and recovering from civil unrest there is a huge need for community development through improving health, increasing opportunites for economic independence and in training and education.  Health and Education Nepal (HEN) works with the Nepalese church to develop communities and bring joy and peace to the people.

What Health and Education Nepal does:

  • Dental Camps - HEN works with Christian organisation in Nepal to provide dental camps in remote poor areas where there is no access to medical or dental care. These villages are often without basic amenities and many people die of preventable conditions.

  • Community Support - HEN also offers training to other members of the community, in areas such as First Aid, Bible Teaching and Oral Health - wherever their partners see a need.

  • Education - HEN provides training and equipment to support teachers and children in schools where the poor children are given the same opportunities as richer ones. We've built a playhouse, given books and educational equipment and modelled story telling and creative play to teachers in schools in poor areas.

  • Sponsorship - HEN provides two types of sponsorship to individuals families:

    • Child Sponsorship Scheme - HEN provides uniforms and fees for poor children and orphans to attend school, and, where necessary, to settle in loving foster families.

    • Microfinance - HEN sponsors poor people across the country to start a small business such as egg selling or pig rearing, enabling them to become self sufficient in the community.

    • HEN also provides bikes for health and community outreach workers to reach isolated communities to offer support and training.  HEN helps workers across Nepal, working with various partner organisations.
