MIT GROUP Foundation

MIT GROUP Foundation

MIT Group Foundation is a charitable trust with the primary goal to uplift vulnerable communities in low-income nations through easy access to education and health care facilities. Coming from Nepal, Mr. Shesh Ghale and Ms. Jamuna Gurung, the founders, were aware of the lack of proper health care and education facilities among many communities. Being involved with NRNA ICC made them clear about the urgency to start supporting these communities in need. Thus the Foundation was established in January 2015. 

Since its establishment, MITGF has engaged in various campaigns in Nepal, including rebuilding projects after the 2015 Earthquake and an immediate relief campaign during the Terai Flood 2017. The Foundation has partnered with the government and local agencies along with the respective communities for these campaigns.
