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.

In 2014, TFI learned of One Heart World-Wide’s (OHW) incredible work. OHW is a program that builds and provides  birthing centers that serve pregnant women in the most remote villages of Nepal.

Before the earthquake, OHW have had an over 90% success rate on reducing infant and maternal mortality. These rural areas previously reported maternal and infant deaths at a rate of 10 to 20 times the global average. Since the earthquake, OHW has been working to rebuild its damaged birthing centers and continues to provide birth attendant and midwife trainings. In short they not only save lives but bring new ones into the world.

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 less fortunate.
