His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester KG

Welcome to the website of The Britain-Nepal Society.

As President of the society, I welcome the launch of the Society’s new website. I am sure that the informative text and stunning photographs will help to spread the word about Nepal – a country for which we all care deeply. I hope too that it will help to attract new members to The Society and continue to instil a deeper understanding and friendship between our two countries.

Jajarkot Earthquake Response, February 2024: The Britain-Nepal Society (UK) Supports Distribution of Fibre Blankets to Earthquake-affected Households

In February 2024, the Britain-Nepal Society, in partnership with Impact Schools Nepal, distributed 300 fibre blankets to families in hard-to-reach rural areas of Shivalaya Rural Municipality, Jajarkot, affected by the recent earthquake. This critical intervention, carried out in close coordination with local authorities, prioritised households with children, women, and girls, as well as those from marginalised backgrounds awaiting support. The response involved navigating challenging terrains to reach the most vulnerable but brought essential warmth and hope to the heart of the affected community in Jajarkot. Thank you to our members in the UK for supporting this meaningful initiative!
