Our Projects

Chaudhary Foundation strives to incorporate the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which follow a holistic approach to ensuring basic human rights to citizens, as well as extending peace and security within its projects. These goals serve as references not only for UN member nations and their governments but also for private sectors, development partners, civil societies and individuals. By referring to the SDGs on a regular basis, Chaudhary Foundation can more effectively foster economic development, environmental protection and social wellbeing.

Chaudhary Foundation and Nepal’s United Nations Development Programme signed a partnership agreement dedicated to the promotion of the SDGs in 2017. Both organizations are taking collaborative steps to increase awareness of SDGs, with the focus on the role of the private sector and mobilization of stakeholders for the achievement of these goals. The partnership will optimize Chaudhary Foundation’s efforts in achieving the SDGs, identifying business opportunities and promoting social, economic and environmental sustainability.

Humanitarian Aid

Chaudhary Foundation believes everyone deserves dignity and aid in times of natural disaster.

While humanitarian response is not currently ongoing, Chaudhary Foundation has a dedicated disaster response team to provide immediate relief following natural disasters. This team was formed after the 2015 earthquake, where the foundation provided long-term humanitarian response to the communities most affected — nearly 9,000 people were killed, 22,000 injured and hundreds of thousands displaced. This team was deployed again during the 2017 floods that were caused by an abnormally heavy monsoon season that disrupted the lives 1.7 million.
