Also since 2012, two new trustees: Nicholas Arbuthnott and Alan Cesarano and two associate members: Christine Edwards and David Woodman.

In July 2008, Tilden Project Nepal achieved registered charity status in Nepal. The work is organised by an Executive Committee (see below) and supported by an Advisory Committee bringing forward the suggestions and requests from the people of Arachour.

All the work is undertaken in memory of Tilden Revell, 30 Oct 1965 – 14 Aug 2001


All administration and fundraising is managed by Tilden’s family, the Trustees of Tilden Project Nepal but we are indebted to the work and commitment of a small army of supporters. Without their help and involvement we would not have been able to achieve so much.
