About DCWC Nepal in the UK

DCWC Nepal is a charity based in and around Blackpool and Lytham St Annes on the Fylde coast of Lancashire. DCWC is the name given to the charity in Nepal and stands for Development of Children and Women Centre. The charity was established in 2003 with its goals to help the poor women and children of Nepal in the form of providing educational and health facilities. Since that time the charity has gone onto build 15 schools and a hospital in various rural areas of Nepal.

The charity has nine trustees who are all strictly voluntary, each of whom have travelled to Nepal and worked on our rural projects. More information can be found on our Trustees page.

DCWC Nepal is also very fortunate to have three great Patrons. We have long time Coronation Street favourite Sean Wilson who played Martin Platt. Sean has now forged a career now with his cheese business and his very successful Northern Cookbook series. Joe Longthorne needs no introduction. After many decades in the music industry Joe recently was awarded the OBE for his work raising funds for charity. We also have Andy Weber, worldly renown amongst the Buddhist fraternity for his Thankga teaching. Andy gives classes in many countries throughout the year and is recognised for his knowledge of Buddhist Iconography. **For more information regarding our patrons go to our Patrons page**
