We have been contributing to the work of the Himalayan Trust family in the Everest (Solukhumbu) region since our foundation in 1989. The work of Sir Edmund Hillary in the Everest region has seen the building of 27 schools, 12 health clinics, training programmes in over 200 schools, re-forestation projects, and disaster relief.
Given the success in educational training in Solukhumbu, we launched our own projects in the Kangchenjunga (Taplejung) region in 2007 where a focus on teacher training has benefited over 5,000 students. In 2013 we expanded our reach to include health specific projects.
Our current strategy is to continue our existing Health and Education programme over the next five years and additionally complete the “Build Back Better” project. Beyond this there is a strong demand to expand our efforts to the surrounding area, but we haven’t taken on that work as of yet.
There is plenty more work to be done in our current projects and with your help with can do even more to help the mountain people of Nepal. You can either Get Involved either through fundraising for us or attending one of our events or provide financial support.
