A Non-Governmental Organisation………
INFO Nepal is based in Kathmandu and registered with the Social Welfare Council of Nepal. Founded in 2000 by four Nepalese with many years of experience managing other International NGOs, INFO Nepal is the first Nepali run volunteer organization for social benefit. INFO stands for ‘Inside Nepal Friendship Organisation’.
As newlyweds, Nepalese couple Namrata and Asim had no idea that they would take 10 children into their home, alongside their own two boys over the next few years. Asim was a tour guide and struggling to feed the expanded family. Asim was convinced by an American businessman to establish an official Children’s Home and with the help of two other Nepalese, Chitwan Happy Home was set up. Nearly two decades later, InfoNepal as a not-for-profit organisation has grown to encompass several cultural exchange and charitable programmes, in addition to supporting over 16 Children’s Homes. The couple and their whole family remain an integral part of the day-to-day operations of the charitable arm. Linked to Asim’s tourism roots, the organisation seeks to encourage visitors to combine experience the breathtaking landscapes and historical sites of Nepal in combination with learning of the culture and welcoming generosity of its local people.
