dZi is one of the most innovative and effective non-profits working in Nepal. Our deep development model pairs engaged donors with some of the most remote communities in the world to create truly transformational change for over 40,000 people.
Working hand-in-hand with local communities enables us to simultaneously increase educational opportunities for young and old; improve health and sanitation; and increase agricultural productivity, income, and nutrition, while preserving the local environment and culture. Community investment in our programs allows us to work in extremely isolated areas with unmatched levels of efficiency and sustainability
dZi was founded by climbers and outdoor enthusiasts and has been connected to the outdoor industry since our inception in 1998.
