THE AUSTRALIAN HIMALAYAN FOUNDATION IS WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE PEOPLE OF THE HIMALAYA TO IMPROVE OUTCOMES IN EDUCATION, HEALTH AND CONSERVATION ACROSS NEPAL, BHUTAN AND INDIA



Since April last year, we have been working with our team on the ground in Nepal to provide the most practical and direct assistance possible to those affected by the earthquake.

As Nepal begins to rebuild after this disaster, education more than ever will be critical to the country’s recovery. It is imperative that the children of Nepal return to school as soon as possible, giving them respite from the devastation they have faced and allowing their parents time to rebuild their lives.

AHF provides long-term assistance to over 300 schools in the very impoverished lower Solu Khumbu region south of Everest and we are now focused on rebuilding the hundreds of schools in the area that were damaged or destroyed by the second earthquake.

In addition, our Teacher Training and Quality Education program has been operating in this region for over ten years and provides vital teacher training, school supplies, educational resources and scholarship assistance to those most in need. This program supports over 42,000 children in approximately 300 schools and provides training for more than 1700 teachers, ensuring these children receive the type of education that can lift them out of poverty.

As families face the loss of livelihoods and homes, this program is needed now more than ever with an increased number of parents requesting scholarship support and schools in desperate need of resources and supplies.

Your support for this program will ensure that these communities can get back on their feet and that the children of Nepal will have hope for the future.
