Our Vision – beating leprosy, breaking stigma and building lives
NLT serves in areas of Nepal where leprosy is still prevalent. Our vision is to help eradicate leprosy; to overcome prejudice against those affected, and to improve people’s standard of living.
NLT is a family of Christian organisations based in Nepal, Ireland and the UK. Our goal is to eradicate leprosy and its associated stigma so that people can lift their lives out of poverty and disadvantage and enjoy health, well-being and respect. We achieve this through medical treatment, social education and village development projects, targeting individuals, small groups and wider communities. The methods we use are considered best practice internationally and our programme outcomes are statistically measurable. We have been working for more than 40 years in Nepal in partnership with the Nepal Government.

Statement of Faith
Our work is inspired by the love of Jesus. We support and empower the outcast, the poor and the hungry, the stranger in our midst, the orphan and the sick.
‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me … ‘
Matthew 25 v 35-36 The Message
