Our Donors & Supporters

surfboardsThis is a page to recognise all our donors and supporters over the years. We’ve tried to remember everybody, BUT if your name is missing please let us know and we’ll add it to the list! See also the list of our committed sponsors who have signed on the sponsorship scheme.

This is a list of donations received over the years, in the country’s own currency unless indicated.

Sponsors via CAN

There are many more sponsors who contributed generously to the Machermo Project through CAN (Community Action Nepal). It is not possible for IPPG to name them all, as the donations were made to CAN. However, those we know include:

P Smith (UK) who raised approximately £8000.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you feel you should be mentioned here as well.
