Our mission

Engineers' Solidarity for Nepal's Development Inc (ESFNDI) is registered in NSW (Australia) as a not-for-profit association with the sole objective of supporting Nepal's development.

We are engineering professionals involved in delivery of numerous iconic projects in Australia and overseas and have networked and created a solidarity to support Public or private infrastructure delivery organisations in Nepal.

These organisations are understandably needing technical expertise and professional support from overseas. The support, for example, can be to help Nepal realise the immense potential to generate clean hydro power from many river systems.

The potential - second only to Brazil - is because of the river systems originating from Himalayan glaciers and snowfields.

Infrasturucture projects in the pipeline or in preliminary design stages include dams, tunnels, roads and bridges.

We will respond to reasonable requests from public or private infrastructure delivery organisations responsible for delivery of mega projects in Nepal and provide technical support under a mutually signed agreement (or a MOU).
