The Partners Nepal (TPN) is a non-profit organization that was established in 2012 by individuals with a long history of helping mountain communities in different areas, 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. The long-term staff at TPN worked at The Mountain Institute (TMI), which worked to help poor mountain communities.
Our program focuses on Community-based Tourism, Natural and Cultural Heritage, Conservation and Restoration of Alpine Ecosystems, Adaptation to Climate Change and Global Warming, Earthquake Relief Programs, and Health Improvement. Our project is in Solukhumbu District, which is in the eastern part of Nepal.
TPN’s constitution said our programs and activities could occur in mountain communities all over Nepal. However, due to the nature of our current project, we are only focusing on Solukhumbu. Since 2015-2016, the TPN office has been in Salleri, at the district headquarters.
