Frequently Asked Questions

Where do my donations go?

Your donations go directly toward our projects in Nepal. We do not spend donations on fundraising administration costs or trustee expenses.

Does NERF give grants to UK institutions?

We do not make grants to UK institutions, only to registered Nepali organisations. However, we do partner with UK organisations that operate in Nepal.

Are NERF’s projects solely earthquake related?

In accordance with the NERF constitution, we are permitted to involve ourselves with projects that go beyond the scope of the 2015 earthquake, PROVIDED THAT our projects are aimed at improving the lives of disadvantaged groups in Nepal. This may be done through improvements to education, access to water, or access to health.

What is NERF’s local presence in Nepal?

NERF has a Trustee who is locally based for part of the year, two permanent local team members who support us with our projects on the ground and a small but growing network of trained volunteers. Also, staff from our local partners work collaboratively with NERF on all of our projects.
