Timeline of Shanti Village:

 

Nepal is a Himalayan nation of 29 million people that has experienced

a rich history of turmoil with its leadership and with challenges by the communist party and Maoist rebels. In 1953, when Edmund Hillary

and the Sherpa Tensing Norgay became the first climber to summit Mount Everest; the country was an absolute monarchy under King Tribhuwan. Fast forward to 1991, the Nepal Congress party won

Nepal’s first democratic election. The country then went through nine prime ministers in 10 years and a communist briefly held power.

A Maoist revolt, which began in 1995, lasted a decade and killed thousands. In the midst of this political unrest, dreams formulated

by a group of healthcare professionals began to take shape.

The rest, as we say, is history.
