At Supporting Nepal's Children we are dedicated to improving the life and choices of children in remote Nepal through the ongoing development of local, quality education.
Starting with the tiny village of Pangboche, nestling just six miles from Everest, we are planning to re-equip schools in this mountainous area and thereby radically increase the quality of education and learning so that young students can have a better chance to progress in life.
This is an entirely voluntary organisation and every penny donated will help to build and equip schools so that these children have the opportunity to fulfil their dreams.
We are a small group of volunteers whose hearts were captured by the Sherpa Community during a successful Everest Expedition in 2012, and ever since have been looking for ways to help them.
Our mission is inspired by Sherpa Tenzing and the hundreds of courageous Sherpas since, who risk their lives every climbing season to further their children’s career choices through expensive schooling, miles away from the family home.
Separated for up to four months at a time, these children are the lucky few – they are hungry for education and to fulfil their parent’s dream of a safer, happier future. For many other children near Everest, that choice is not available – many do not go to school, and education standards vary widely. Some schools in the area operate with a single teacher to a class of 50+ and little or no resources. They do the best they can with what they have.
We aim to change that - to bring quality education to the remote Nepali villages so that their children can flourish, learn new skills, and create opportunities for themselves whilst staying within their own community. Our plan is to provide a “hand-up”, not a “hand-out.” Through our organisation and with the support of the many trekkers and climbers who pass through the area, we aim to help the local education specialists re-equip the schools and rebuild where necessary with the full involvement of the village community.
We have already petitioned and persuaded the Nepalese Government to double the insurance premiums for Sherpas and expedition support staff required of Western Expeditions employing their services anywhere in the world. Widows and orphans who have lost their husband or father during an expedition are now financially better protected against any tragedy. Since 2006, 63 Sherpas have been killed in the Himalayas.

We hate anonymous websites, so listed below are our contact details, emails and telephone numbers, along with our photos so you know who you are talking to. Call any of us, to discuss any ideas you have (or simply to give you assurance that we actually exist). Sorry if it goes to voicemail – we all hold down full-time jobs so we might be in a meeting! But we will call you back.
There are numerous ways to help but at the very core of what we do is the need to raise money to fund these projects. It’s easy to say, but with your help we can change lives and help this community grow and thrive.
