Nepal

TFI has been working in Nepal since 2014. The country’s isolated rural areas are in the most need since they have much higher rates of extreme poverty than more urban or well-connected communities. Since the devastating earthquake in 2015, much of the country’s infrastructure has crumbled, dramatically increasing their need for aid.

Water in Nepal (WIN) was founded by Zachary Wong while he was still in high school, WIN invests in water filtration and infrastructure projects to bring easier access to clean water to Nepalese government schools, rural villages, and local institutions. They have funded 20 projects and impacted over 8,000 Nepalese so far, and have more projects planned for the future. Zach’s goal is for everyone in Nepal to have clean drinking water. TFI awarded Zach a cash prize along with our 2019 Compassion Award for his vision and work on behalf of others.
