The children of the Foundation

Over the past 25 years the Foundation has developed seven Sherpa cultural projects in the valleys of Everest, Solukhumbu and Makalu (renovation of mills, chörtens and monasteries). Most importantly, it helped to fully educate 39 orphaned children whose fathers have died on Himalayan expeditions.

In 2021, we still support the education of 16 children/students.
