DINESH TAMANG BLON
Dinesh was born in Haku and when his village literally vanished due to multiple dry avalanches and landslides caused by the earthquake, he rushed to be of assistance to his relatives, friends and other Haku’s inhabitants.
This project wouldn’t come into existence without his extraordinary levels of social responsibility and sensibility.

Dinesh has been in tourism industry for the last 13 years and is currently the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of Trekking Experts, a dynamically growing trekking agency which he established in 2013.
Dinesh is Healing Haku Project’s heart and mind and his mission and goal is to help the inhabitants of Haku to rebuild their village and recover their financial independence.

Living in Nepal since 2010, Edyta has worked in the field of international aid sector, collaborating with few non-governmental organizations, focused mostly on assisting Nepali women and children.

Healing Haku Project also counts on the assistance of two local associations, Haku Yuwa Manch and Green Youth Tourism Development Society.
Haku Yuwa Manch is a local youth group registered as a nonprofit organization. The members of this group are energetic, highly motivated and devoted young people from the village of Haku, who have been contributing to this project as volunteers in different tasks: arranging permissions from concerned government bodies, submitting documentation required by the government to the authorities after concluding each phase of this project, coordinating with all stakeholders involved in this project during distribution of relief materials or mobilizing local manpower.
Green Youth Tourism Development Society is another local youth-run nonprofit association from Rasuwa District.
In the aftermath of the earthquake, District Development Rescue Committee (governmental body) assigned different responsibilities to all the country’s NGOs. Haku Yuwa Society coordinates programs related to the local development, such as agriculture, infrastructure, etc, while Green Youth Tourism Development Society helps with projects undertaken in the fields of education, conservation or water supply.
