I have traveled to Nepal 8 times since 2005 to facilitate humanitarian work and decided to stay at Mountain Fund this year. I worked with and for some of their long term projects andI stayed for 8 weeks, off and on from Feb 18th- April 17th ( 5 weeks there). I was able to know this organization well. In order to be effective in Nepal one has to love the country and it's people. In my experience I have come to understand that most Nepali people want to leave Nepal and not return and many NGO'scollect funds to enhance their own lives first and others second. To my delight I found Mountain Fund to be genuine in their concern for others first. Scott and Sunita and their staff are people who are "in love" with the Nepali people and have a heart to help them to be lifted up from the burdens they carry in this impoverished country. Mountain Fund supports many organizations in Nepal who have excellent reputations. They keep well informed on the progress of projects in order to keep funding going where it is said to be going. The Women's coop ,one of their new projects in a very rural area, completely satisfied me that Mountain Fund will be able to help impoverished families and women with the careful structure that Sunita has put in place from the Nepali side while Scott has worked on the Western side to get this up and running. The Mountain Fund facilities are well located and are as good if not better than frequented hotels. The staff are kind, well informed, friendly and very willing to help in any way they can. I would highly recommend this Organization to facilitate Volunteers and donations.
