PHASE Worldwide

Practical Help Achieving Self-Empowerment (PHASE) Worldwide was founded in 2005. Since then, we have grown into a charity which has raised millions of pounds. Every year, the work we support changes the lives of over 50,000 people.

We support projects in some of the most remote and rural communities in Nepal. In these areas, poor health, low levels of education and few livelihood opportunities trap people in a cycle of poverty. This cycle prevents people from taking control of their lives. Through our long-term partner PHASE Nepal, we support integrated and sustainable health, education, and livelihood projects. We enable people to access knowledge, skills, services, whilst at the same time, strengthening local government provision. Today our work is focused on Nepal, but we plan to expand our support into other countries too.

All of our work, both overseas and in the UK, is based on empowerment. We believe that all aspects of our work should make people stronger and more confident. This applies to people involved in the projects we support, staff working for PHASE Worldwide, as well as supporters who join us to support our vision.

Sustainability is a key part of our work, facilitated by the involvement of people at all stages of programme development and our commitment to the strengthening and expansion of existing government services. We aim to make a lasting difference, but not to stay.
