Working with the community of Gorkha in Nepal

Gorkha Development Scheme (GDS) is a small UK based charity established nearly 30 years ago by founder Joy Leighton.  The aim of the charity has always been to work with the Gorkha community to help the poorest people and this was seen all to well following the devastating earthquakes which hit the region in 2015.
