The United Mission to Nepal (UMN) strives to address root causes of poverty as it serves the people of Nepal in the name and spirit of Jesus Christ.
Established in 1954, UMN is a co-operative effort between the people of Nepal and a large number of Christian organisations from nearly 20 countries on four continents.
Multicultural teams of Nepali nationals and volunteer expatriate staff work alongside local organisations in less developed areas of the country, building partnerships that lead to healthy, strong and empowered individuals, families, and communities.
In 2012 PCI commissioned the Lockwood family for service in Nepal. Peter serves as Programme Advisor with UMN and Valerie teaches English and Business Studies at the Kathmandu International Study Centre (KISC).
