‘by remaining small, Creative Nepal can do big things’
Welfare, Education and Care are important factors in a human life.
In Nepal these three factors cannot be taken for granted, which causes their basic needs to come in danger. To work with local initiatives who focus on improving these factors, once can start to develop a sustainable company.
Personally I think that local initiatives work well, definitely if there is a good collaboration between people who have the same goal in mind.
A better world for everyone!

Douwe Kiran Soeting
My name is Douwe Kiran Soeting, born on 14th of February 1979 in Alkmaar, The Netherlands. After finishing the Free School in Bergen I took the first step in going abroad: I worked a year on a Camphill in Norway. Another language, another culture, new people.
I have loved traveling ever since and have been to the most diverse places in the world, either to work or travel. Soon I found out that it meant much more to me to work and live somewhere and to really get to know the culture and people, instead of exploring a country as a tourist.
In the past years I have often been abroad, which resulted in creating my dream. Creative Nepal, an initiative with which I can do something others and make sure I can deploy myself at places where it’s necessary. What started as a comparable website with Outdoor products, is now getting to the core, what is way more important to me: charities and good initiatives.
Joost van Riel
In 2016, Douwe told me he would go to Nepal to work, never expecting that it would yield Creative Nepal. After his six months of voluntary work there, he came back to The Netherlands for 1,5 week and asked me to help him shape Foundation Creative Nepal.
Because I’ve always been interested in other cultures and ways of life in other countries, I read about the initiatives that occupied Douwe. This made me decide I wanted to join him.
Besides holidays in Europe, I’ve backpacked through Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia and Mexico. I also recently went to Paramaribo. Unfortunately I never visited Nepal, but I’m sure this will happen one day. I’ve always wanted to mean something to countries that are in worse conditions than western countries considering both nature and the indigenous people. I can now finally fulfil this dream by being part of the board of Creative Nepal.
I hope it won’t be long till I can see for myself what Creative Nepal has been and will be able to achieve in Nepal. I currently live in The Hague, working part-time at Passion Support, an ICT company that offers support to companies using mostly Apple products. Beside that I work for myself by building websites and I also love photography and I share these via the website www.josijo.nl.
I am trained as a coach and has been working since 20 years in healthcare. In the past 5 years I have specialized in guiding people with an autism spectrum disorder. Foundation Creative Nepal is committed to helping people with disabilities in Nepal. Here I would like to contribute to that.
My name is Krishna Khadka. I’m 30 years old and from Palpa, Nepal. Several years ago I had an accident and became a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the neck down.
I was lucky with so many good friends helping me in my time of need. It was difficult to keep myself smiling through the years but I also learned that giving up is not an option. Now it is my turn to give back by, helping my friends and fellow residents.
By creating awareness and sharing my story and motivation I hope to make a difference.
The sun rises every day without any exception.
Working together makes any task easier. Through my website I would like to share my story and the story of those who need the assistance to live a full life.
