Posted in About Shanti Nepal

Shanti Nepal is a social development organization, registered with the government of Nepal in Lalitpur District since April 2003. The organization was born from a shared vision of experienced Christian community health and development professionals with a passion for helping people in need and demonstrating love and compassion. Shanti Nepal facilitates sustainable social development through mobilization and empowerment of poor and marginalized communities and partnership with local governments and non-governmental organizations (NGO).

 Our vision

Our mission

Physical transformation:  communities are equipped to improve their economy, health, and related physical infrastructures, leading to better quality of life for their members.

Social transformation: communities are organized, harmonious, and aware, with high self-esteem and social cohesion (sense of community), and cooperate with each other on common issues.

Spiritual transformation: communities discern the loving action of God and His creation.
