‘Reaching the summit of a mountain gives great satisfaction, but nothing for me has been more rewarding in life than the result of our climb on Everest, when we have devoted ourselves to the welfare of our Sherpa friends.’ Sir Edmund Hillary
++ KENTON COOL IS SPEAKING AT THE NINTH SIR EDMUND HILLARY MEMORIAL LECTURE. TICKETS ARE NOW AVAILABLE ++
We would all like a world where everybody’s basic needs are met and every child has access to an education and adequate health. The Himalayan Trust UK aims to ensure this happens in the remote mountainous districts of Nepal – in particular the regions surrounding Mt Everest (Solukhumbu) and Mt Kanchenjunga (Taplejung).
Our projects are all requested by the mountain people of Nepal, who contribute to the projects themselves. We are an experienced organisation, continually working to improve how we manage and monitor the work we do.
The Himalayan Trust UK trustees work on an entirely voluntary basis. A modest 2.5% of funds are spent on administration, all in Nepal, all contributing to the local economy.
More information about our recent progress in our Health and Education projects can be found in our Newsletter 2016.
We’d like to invite you to the ninth Sir Edmund Hillary Memorial Lecture with Kenton Cool on 8 June 2017 where we will also provide an update about the progress made in all our projects. To find out more about the lecture and to buy tickets click here.
