History of the association

Our chairman Wilfrid Remy visited Nepal for the first time in 1978/79 where he met Sherpa Pasang from Simigaon in the Gaurishankar district. Over the years and on the occasion of many more visits to Nepal, their friendship and a very fruitful collaboration evolved.

In 1999, Wilfrid Remy provided legal advice to Nepra e.V., a Dortmund-based organisation engaged in leprosy relief in Nepal, and was then elected to the board of Nepra e.V.

In 2006, his mother, Dr. Gladys Remy, made over her estate to Nepra e.V. She was primarily interested in facilitating the establishment of a hospital ward in the remote mountainous regions south of the Gaurishankar, a project suggested by Sherpa Pasang.

Since the beginning of the friendship and collaboration with Sherpa Pasang, further projects in this region have been realised.

In 2014, finally, Future Spirit Nepal e.V (FSN) evolved from the former Nepra e.V. as it seemed reasonable to share tasks. In accordance with the wishes of Dr. Gladys Remy, FSN focusses on helping in the mountainous regions.
