Our People

Hands Together Tiplyang Project is a UK Registered Charity (No. 1146944). We owe our sincerest thanks to its many supporters. 

Our Patron: Joanna Lumley OBE, FRGS

The well-known British Actress and daughter of Michael Rutherford Lumley, Joanna Lumley, has supported our project from the beginning. Besides her fame as an actress, Lumley is well-known for her activism in memory of her late father, who served alongside both Tul Bahadur Pun and Michael Allemand during the Second World War. In 2012, Joanna made a generous contribution to rebuild the school in Tiplyang. Since then, she has graciously acted as patron of Hands Together Tiplyang Project.
