Helping the Didi Project

Poverty is evident everywhere one travels in the small country of Nepal. But so is human courage, spiritual strength, and ancient wisdom. There are many ways to get involved, from volunteering to providing financial assistance. Even with a small donation, results can be gratifying and provide opportunities to families which allow them to rise from poverty to a self-sustaining life.

You can become involved on various levels, from making a small contribution of time or money either at home or during a visit in Nepal, to committing to a long term project. The Didi Project can provide you with information and contacts for projects we have evaluated and believe to be reputable.

We invite you to become a Didi or a Bhai in the following ways.

Make a donation

Every dollar goes directly to help empower women and children in individual families or in community settings. All of the Didis volunteer their time and services so your donations are fully applied to the critical needs we have identified. The Didi Project is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization (Tax ID: 26-2687009). Donations are tax deductible.

Trekking with a Purpose

A close up look at Nepali culture in Kathmandu and a Trek in the Himalayas. Wherever we venture we will enjoy the sights, meet people, sometimes in their homes, and experience progressive development projects first hand. We'll experience Hindu and Buddhist religion and culture. We will be attentive to the varied ethnic groups that make up this surprisingly diverse country. We'll walk for 1 to 4 hours in the cities or in the mountains. During our mountain trek, elevations will vary from 10,000 to 11,548 feet.

Networking and Partnerships with key programs and people

Most years, the Didi Project sponsors a networking conference in Kathmandu. Community leaders from many helping groups gather together to share their program goals and methods. We are very fortunate to enjoy working relationships with so many Nepalese and foreign experts. Our list of partners and colleagues grows each year
