Contribution to the earthquake victims

SAWTEE in an effort to give continuation to its support towards the earthquake victims distributed blankets for them. It was inspired by the news published in various newspapers about them suffering in cold weather in their makeshift tents. Around 200 blankets were distributed in Dhading and Gorkha districts in collaboration with the government officials and locals.

SAWTEE at the sidelines of the MC10

SAWTEE organized two different sessions at the Trade and Development Symposium that took place on the sidelines of the 10th Ministerial Conference of the WTO in Nairobi, Kenya. The sessions were based on the themes of trade facilitation and climate change respectively. Participants and speakers from various countries across the world attended the sessions. 

SAWTEE efforts in times of need

In the aftermath of the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal on 25 April 2015, SAWTEE extended its helping hand to the earthquake victims by raising funds for relief efforts. SAWTEE and its staff members successfully raised NRP 2,65,000 and transferred NRP 1,11,111 to the Prime Minister Relief Fund. In addition, SAWTEE also procured food items, which were distributed to those affected in Sindhupalchowk district. Considering that some of SAWTEE staffs from outside Kathmandu Valley have lost their house to the earthquake and its subsequent aftershocks, SAWTEE provided token amount to help them rebuild their homes.
