Thank you for your support.

With your help we can do even more to help the mountain people of Nepal.

We welcome your gift of any amount. Money stretches a very long way in the Himalaya and even a modest donation can change a life. Hear from the likes of Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Kenton Cool, Ben Fogle, the late Jan Morris and Sir Chris Bonington why it is time to follow in Sir Ed Hillary’s footsteps and give back to the people in the remote mountain villages of Nepal

(the message was filmed during COVID-19, but their reasons for giving back still holds true today)

For the mountain people of Nepal, life is hard. We aim to offer help where we can in the Everest and Kangchenjunga regions. All of our projects are requested by the mountain people who do much of the work themselves, and are thus efficiently run. We are experienced as a Trust. We have a network of contacts developed over decades, and yet continuously look to improve how we manage and monitor our work.

The Trust is entirely run by volunteers, so we have very low costs.
