Launch of the Paul Pholeros Foundation

The Paul Pholeros Foundation (PPF) was registered as a charity in April 2018 and will support, annually, a plumbing team from Australia to work alongside their Nepali counterparts on a sanitation construction project in rural Nepal, transferring their skills in a train the trainer and cultural exchange context.

Recognising Paul’s lifelong commitment to improving people’s lives by addressing environmental and housing issues, the PPF honours his legacy through this investment in the people who can bring about real change – the Nepali and the Australian teams, who will raise the sanitation standards in rural villages.

Uni of Newcastle team last year in Arubot.... folks, thanks to Surya at left, TT can continue to support the reconstruction of lost homes. The villagers welcome you to return and see how people are rebuilding their lives. Namaste and Laso!! ...

Thanks Australian Dental Association for these magnificent flowers. It was an honour to be invited by the ADA to share information about TT’s Nepal activities, with dentists young and not so young. ...

One of the recipients of the latest round of funds raised by TT’s helpers to support post-earthquake reconstruction in Nepal. Arjun and his family have lived in a rudimentary shelter for more than 4 years; our subsidy has allowed him to finally build this small home, completed this week. Arjun is of the BK caste, considered one of the lowest and untouchable castes. One of my always-memories is the moment his piercing eyes of deep gratitude melted my insides as I handed him the key to his family toilet in 2014. Dignity. ...

Young Prem, all materials to this building site are brought in by manual labour ...
