MEMBERS AND OUR APPROACH

The Partners Nepal’s members have long time experience in serving mountain communities. The members of TPN were the former employee of The Mountain Institute founded and registered The Partners Nepal in 2012. Since then The Partners Nepal inspired those who loves and cares the mountain communities.

TPN’s another approach is to work extensively through local partner organizations. The approach of using local partner organizations yields many lasting positive benefits including reducing costs, expanding impacts, enhancing program sustainability and creating local capacity to conduct conservation programs after projects are completed. The Partners Nepal had the pleasure to nominate 3 international advisors and 6 general members to the board of The Partners Nepal as of December 2018 Annual meeting held at Indreni cafe.

The three international advisors: Brian J. Peniston, Peter Hillary the son of late Sir Edmund Hillary and Peter Nichols. The six general members are: Shree Dhoj Rai (Sotang), Ang Temba Sherpa (Khunde), Sushila Thing (Sarlahi), Phurba Sherpa (Goli), Min Bahadur Rai (Phuleli) and Sovit Kulung (Chheskam).
