Organization Registration Certificate

The Partners Nepal (TPN) a non-profit making organization was established in 2012 by individuals with long experience serving mountain communities in different fields, such as protected area management, community forest management, natural and cultural heritage conservation, and restoration, conservation and restoration of fragile alpine ecosystems, community-based ecotourism and livelihood improvement. TPN’s strength is that the long-term staff served at The Mountain Institute (TMI), who seeks to help such deprived mountain communities.

Our program focuses on Community-based Tourism, Natural and Cultural Heritage, Conservation and Restoration of Alpine Ecosystems, Adaptation of Climate Change and Global Warming, Earthquake Relief Program, and Health Improvement.

Our project lies in the Solukhumbu District of eastern Nepal. TPN’s constitution had defined that our programs and activities could implement in the mountain communities throughout Nepal, but at present, we have focused only on Solukhumbu due to the nature of our project priority. TPN’s office located in the district headquarters in Salleri since 2015-2016.

Our Vision Is:

“To establish a platform for mountain communities in Conserving Mountain Ecosystems, Conservation & Restoration of Natural and Cultural Heritage improving sustainable livelihoods of mountain communities”.

Our Mission is:

“help the impoverished communities develop a sustainable source of income and establish practices that will regenerate the local environment for current and future generations.”
