Equality and Diversity

HI UK’s Equality and Diversity Policy permeates all aspects of its work, including its actions and attitudes towards employees, clients, consultants, temporary workers, and all others associated with its work.

The organisation recognises that individuals and groups have been discriminated against on many grounds, including the ‘protected characteristics’ under the Equality Act (age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation). HI UK’s policy is that no individual or group should receive less favourable treatment on any of these grounds.

Nepal earthquake: Nirmala and Khendo still inseperable, three years on

On 25 April 2015, Nepal was hit by a violent earthquake. Hundreds of kilometres apart, Nirmala and Khendo were both buried under the rubble. Rushed to hospital, they each had a leg amputated. This is where they met, attended rehabilitation sessions with HI’s physiotherapists, and learned to walk. Three years on, they are almost never apart and even go to school together.
