The children of the Fondation

Over the past 23 years the Foundation has developed seven Sherpa cultural projects in the valleys of Everest, Solu Khumbu and Makalu (renovation of mills, chörtens and monasteries). Most importantly, it helped to fully educate 38 orphaned children whose fathers have died on Himalayan expeditions.

In 2019, we still support the education of 18 students (including two new ones).
