Why does Sachham exist and what do we stand for?
Nepal is a country with an uncertain future, about three times larger than Switzerland with around 29 million inhabitants, sandwiched between the great powers China in the north and India in the south. In the north the highest mountains in the world and in the tropical south large primeval forests dominate the landscape. Agriculture is still the largest source of income for the population.
Although the monarchy was abolished and democracy proclaimed in 2008, the country is marked by political instability. The severe earthquake of 2015 and the regular floods during the monsoon season repeatedly set the country back in its development.
In addition, illiteracy, a lack of access to medical care and education, corruption, a lack of clean drinking water and rising food prices are huge challenges for the country.
Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world and the people depend on the help of the foreign organizations that work in place.
