Founded in 2005, the Mountain Fund aims to create healthy, vibrant mountain communities where people have access to healthcare, education and economic opportunity in an environment where human rights are valued and respected. To achieve this goal, we sponsor community-based initiatives that prioritize respect for the local culture and the environment.
Created 3 health clinics and 1 hospital in rural Nepal. Our current flagship project is called Her Farm at www.herfarmnepal.org. Her Farm is located in rural Nepal and provides a safe place for women and their children to live, farm and thrive. They can control their desitinies by controlling the land they live on and collectively own. The Mountain Fund received the prestigious Sir Edmund Hillary Medal in 2010.

annakrat's Review for The Global Mountain Fund Inc

I became involved with The Mountain Fund through my high school in a class called Global Perspectives, in March of 2013. Our trip was so enjoyable and that was largely due to all the work Scott, Sunita and the rest of the Mountain Fund contributed! Our travels throughout the country went smoothly and I actually felt that the work I did made an impact. Not only did we build a shelter for families, but we also met the families that were going to be living there, which was quite amazing.
