Your gift can help change lives forever

Donate Now

Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. Over 50% of the country live on $3 a day or less. 

We know that it’s the most vulnerable – children – who suffer the most.

  • In Nepal, 29 babies die for every live 1000 births (compared to 4.7 deaths in New Zealand).
  • Disease and poor nutrition cause nearly 40% of children to suffer from stunted growth. Severe stunting limits a child’s ability to learn and attend school.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Your gift today will transform lives by helping to break this cycle of poverty and provide access to quality education, clean water and life saving health care.

How your donation makes a difference

These costs are indicative only and reflect the cost of providing them.

Books in schools

High in the Everest region of Nepal, schools are very poorly funded with little in the way of resources. Reading books and school stationery are luxury items for families and schools. A donation of $60 could provide essential school books for 10 children.

Desks and benches for schools

All 60 schools supported by the Himalayan Trust were damaged in the earthquakes and 10 were completely destroyed. A donation of $33 could provide a desk and bench for two school children, helping us to refit those schools and ensure children can continue their education.

Supporting Science

The Himalayan Trust is working to improve the quality of education in Nepal.  Your gift could help us provide equipment for a high school science lab.

Annual scholarship for a high school student

The people of the mountains have a right to a good education. With your help, the Trust aims to grow the number of scholarships it issues for young men and women in Solukhumbu.

Toilet block for 200 students

Following the devastating earthquakes earlier this year, the Trust will be rebuilding classrooms, teacher’s quarters, student hostels and toilet blocks in at least 22 schools across the Everest region. Your gift will help us build the schools back stronger than before and better able to withstand their tough environment.
