How was HDCS started How we started The story of HDCS is closely linked to the personal journey of the founder of HDCS, Dr. Tirtha Thapa. At the age of 15, Dr. Thapa's father passed away which played a vital role in bringing about two of the most significant changes in his life--his faith and his aspiration. Dr. Thapa understood access to basic medical services probably would have saved his father's life. At the age of 16, he left his village in west Nepal and moved to Kathmandu. There, after many years of hard work and struggle was able to establish his vision. In 1991, HDCS was founded as a faith-based NGO. Initially, it began in areas of social and community development programs such as providing safe drinking water, nonformal education, poverty alleviation program as well as building suspension bridges in remote areas of Nepal. Today, it is consistent with its focus on these three areas of health, education and community development. Through HDCS, hundreds of thousands of people in Nepal have access to affordable quality health care, transformational education, and are learning the skills they need to improve their lives.
