HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation is a non-profit organization that promotes self-reliant and sustainable development in more than 30 countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America. It is a denominationally and politically independent association, supported by approximately 38’000 members and more than 40’000 sponsors.
HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation came to Nepal in 1956 and now cooperates with many technical and social organizations in all 75 districts across the country. The organisation works within five working areas – Education and Skills Development, Environment and Climate, Governance and Peace, Rural Economy and Water and Infrastructure.

We aim at creating an environment where people have new choices and become equipped with new skills and abilities to improve their livelihoods. It promotes the principles of decentralization and subsidiarity in decision making, implementation and accountability for development.
