Oxfam in Nepal is committed to being open about our work and to being accountable to the communities we work with, our partner organizations and to our donors and supporters.

Oxfam in Nepal respects the money provided by people and organisations across the globe to support the people in need in Nepal. Oxfam spends only 11% of its total budget on program management costs, while 89% is spent on project implementation. Most of the latter costs will be channeled through implementing partner organisations. Our detailed 2017/18 Annual Report can be viewed here.
