The work of Wind of Change in Nepal to date has been greatly succesful with expanding projects and happy beneficiaries. While there is success, there are also ongoing challenges. There is continuous political and financial uncertainty in the country, generally low levels of education and health as well as poor infrastructure, making living conditions challenging. Certainly the devastation and destruction brought by the Earthquake in April 2015 has and will further these challenges.
It is only long term commitment in addressing the root causes of these problems that will see Nepal become a more competitive economy, and a fairer, healthier and safer place to live. Wind of Change believes that through its efforts in providing a safe childhood and education for children, it will make a small contribution toward a better future for Nepal.
The Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to allow children from disadvantaged backgrounds to continue their education in circumstances where otherwise their families could not afford to send them to school, and they may be vulnerable to becoming engaged in child labour, begging or human trafficking.

The Nepal Hearing Project, headed by an Australian audiometrist David Hine commenced operations in March 2010.
For over 5 years the well-established hearing clinic provided medical treatment, conducted hearing assessments and fitted thousands of free hearing aids or other assistive listening devices to countless amount of people in and around Pokhara as well as Nepal-wide through rural ear camps.
Since the end of 2015 the clinic has successfully started operating as part of a new international ENT hospital in Pokhara.
