Our People

clean up meeting-05

‘Clean up Nepal attracts transformation leaders. We engage with individuals, communities and organisations underpinned by an understanding of the benefits of improved solid waste management to the health and well-being of communities throughout Nepal.

We celebrate diversity. We work with visionaries. We attract skilled individuals who can add to our global pool of talent. We believe in the power of working together.

Clean up Nepal is a thought leader. We understand the benefits of cultivating greater awareness amongst communities, working together with students and youth, and connecting with stakeholders who have the knowledge and experience.

‘Clean up Nepal is all about its people, connecting with each other to achieve shared goals’.
— Dr Neelam Pradhananga, Clean up Nepal Founder

Clean up Nepal’s people are the heart and soul of the organisation. Our people bring a diverse set of skills and experience as well as  share an unwavering passion for creating change through community mobilisation and active engagement with stakeholders.

Our people include the Board, Staff, Members, Organisers and Volunteers.

We are leaders in bottom-up solid waste management and also leaders in our respective fields including community development, education, marketing, communications, partnerships and fundraising.

We learn together, work together and have fun together – inspiring collective action.
