NERF pursues recovery through Education, Livelihoods and Self-Governance, working at the grass-roots level with local partners, capacity building and delivering recovery via community based solutions.

On 25 April 2015 at 11:56am a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal. More than 8,800 people were killed and more than 23,000 were injured. This was the worst natural disaster to hit Nepal in almost 100 years. The devastation is wide-reaching, and recovery will be a very long process. Ongoing political issues and conflicts are placing further strain on communities who've suffered so much already.


Our Mission

We strive to work collaboratively with carefully selected local partners in order to implement innovative community based projects. 

We do this by facilitating:

  • The re-establishment of rural communities that have suffered from the 2015 Earthquakes including their after effects and all other associated crises; and
  • The development of those communities farther than ever before, focusing on improvements to infrastructure, access to education for children and adults, public health, and economic stability using sustainable and enduring methods.


Whether operating in the field or in the UK at all times we adhere to our core values of:

  • Kindness
  • Transparency
  • Accountability
  • Collaboration
  • Interaction
  • Grass-roots engagement

Nepal Earthquake Recovery Fund is a start-up charity with a difference. We are focused on collaborating with local partners at a grassroots level to deliver relief to the most isolated and vulnerable Nepalese communities
