Nepal Synapse Self-Reliance Association

To enhance our reputation as a company and to leave lasting value in society, the Nepal Synapse Self-Reliance Support Association (NPO) was established in November 2008. As an alternative for providing financial aid as volunteers, we have engaged in stimulating a "circular economy" in which villagers can earn income and form a sustainable community. We have also constructed a five-year self-reliance support plan for Nepalese mothers to earn income for their children. This project is scheduled for reestablishment in the future as the "Nepal Fordays Self-Reliance Support Association" (NGO). This project is expected to be run exclusively by the local residents. Fordays will continue to supervise and enable this independent business operation.
