About AHF

 

For many Australians, the Himalayan hinterland is an adventurer’s playground.

 

But for the remote communities who live there, accessing and affording basic health and education services can be a lifelong struggle – and climate change poses a growing threat.

 

Our practical and cost effective programs, delivered in partnership with local organisations, aim to support families to not solely survive, but to set them up to thrive for years to come.

OUR PROGRAMS
