“It makes a big difference to a tiny charity like ours to be able to connect with other groups. Our BRANNGO subscription has been well worth the outlay.”   Pat and Liz Wherity – Kids at School in Nepal.

A shared commitment
to helping the people
and country of Nepal


Promoting information sharing and collaboration

The Britain and Nepal NGO Network, BRANNGO, promotes information-sharing and collaboration between NGOs and with other agencies, to avoid duplication of effort and increase the efficiency and effectiveness with which charitable aid is delivered to Nepal.

BRANNGO maintains close working links with British and Nepalese Government departments and embassies, the Britain-Nepal Society, the Nepal Federation of NGOs and other organisations that have an interest in helping disadvantaged and needy people in the country.


BRANNGO membership offers:

• Access to a wide-ranging network of like-minded and supportive contacts

• A programme of events concerned with charitable work in Nepal – many based on specialist areas of interest, such as education or health

• Newsletters, social media and other channels through which information-sharing, discussion and collaboration can take place




 At the core of BRANNGO’s value-add activities are the Working Groups.  The two longest-established ones are Education and Health, which hold regular discussions, briefings and webinars.  A third working group on Environment, Climate Change and Conservation has started operation in January 2022.

Rising Cost of Living in Nepal
The cost of living in Nepal has been rising steeply, with many items of food now costing up to 20% more than two years ago. The country relies heavily on imports of food and fuel and the cost of these have been driven up by inflationary pressures worldwide caused by surges in demand after the Covid pandemic and more recently the impact of the war in Ukraine on oil prices. The rising cost of imports from abroad has in turn depleted Nepal’s foreign exchange reserves by more than 16% to mid-February and increased Government debt, with no sign of the pressures easing in the foreseeable future. The government has restricted the import of non-essential goods such as cars, cosmetics and gold and is considering whether to limit consumption of fuel by again restricting the use of cars and commercial vehicles. The situation is exacerbated because many Nepalis lost their jobs during the pandemic, including those working overseas, and remittances from expatriate Nepalis, which constitute almost a quarter of the country’s GDP, have dropped by 5%. Sadly, as in other countries, it is therefore the poorest and most dependent who are feeling the impact of all this.
