Invitation to Tender for Provision of Helicopter Services 

Job posted on 3rd February 2021         Apply by 23rd February, 2021


MountainChild, Inc

MountainChild, Inc is a charity incorporated in the USA, and a registered INGO in Nepal. Its origins began in 2000 when exploratory teams traveled to the high Himalayan regions of Nepal to research the severe medical, social, educational, and environmental challenges facing children and their families in these areas. Through a project agreement with the Social Welfare Council of Nepal, and with continuing consultation with local government, civil society organizations and community leaders, MountainChild focuses on five core areas: health, education, child labor, anti-trafficking and environment. Its goal through our humanitarian and development work is to stop the cycle of suffering and enable mountain children to become carriers of hope to their people. In the ChumNubri Rural Municipality of far northern Gorkha we work through implementing partner, SGCAS, supporting schools, health posts and operating the HALO (Helicopter Air Lift Operation) rapid transport service for Nepalis in need of urgent transport to higher levels of medical care.

Shree Gap Community Awareness Society (SGCAS)

SGCAS is a registered NGO, based in the ChumNubri Rural Municipality of Gorkha, which exists to promote the public wellbeing of Himalayan people by ensuring increased access to health and education, working towards sustainable agricultural solutions, the elimination of human trafficking and promoting care for the environment. It works towards elimination of poverty and building resilience through livelihood projects, adult literacy and education, and through disaster risk reduction programs and training. Through all SGCAS’s activities, it promotes gender and social equity, by prioritizing women and girls, disabled, indigenous and marginalized groups, coordinating with civil society organizations, individuals, community and government.

Tender Ref. No TD 76-77/ 001 / HELI

MountainChild, Inc & its implementing NGO partner SGCAS, pursuant to a project agreement with SWC, Nepal, invite tenders for provision of helicopter services on an as and when required basis, including:

  •       Rapid transport for medical emergencies.

  •      Cargo and passenger flights in support of project activities.

  •      Occasional needs for sling capability to support project activities.

  •      Passenger flights to facilitate donor inspections, research and development, and monitoring and evaluation of the project.

  •      COVID19

There are no guaranteed minimum flight hours as this contract is based on an as need requirement.


MountainChild, Inc through its partnership with SGCAS, focuses its efforts among those in the Himalayas that are the most remote, and therefore, have the least access to medical assistance, clean water, and education and are most at risk of child labor and human trafficking.

Because of the geographical and access challenges, safe, efficient and effective helicopter services are critical to achieving much of what we do as organisations. If you would like to be part of this work by the provision of helicopter services, we welcome you to take part in this invitation.
