The Global Mountain Fund has been committed to making a real-life difference in Nepal for a number of years. They are particularly interested in improving living conditions for children and women, plus developing sustainable livelihood for women. They have developed valuable projects to this end. Their website contains details about their projects: www.mountainfund.org. I do not work for this organization, but have watched them move the mountain of poverty in Nepal. They have an extensive volunteer program which helps to fund their projects, so that 100% of your donation is used on the ground in Nepal. If you have funds to give, I have 110% confidence that the Global Mountain Fund will use them wisely to create positive change for those they serve in Nepal. Cheers!

I am an expat. who lives in Kathmandu part of the year and own tourist base businesses in Nepal. I have seen and heard from many volunteers in Nepal over the years and have worked with some of the local volunteer organizations. I have to say I am most impressed with the work being done at the Mountain Fund. Scott and his team look for meaningful projects in Nepal and then call on volunteers to help meet the goals he sees will truly help Nepali people. The Mountain Fund is one of the only volunteer organizations in Nepal that I truly believe in and would feel happy recommending to anyone interested in volunteering here. They are small, genuine, accountable and really care that each volunteer has a wonderful experience while doing some much needed service for Nepali people.

The Mountain Fund is doing a great job in Nepal! They are one of the few I would entrust my money with. "Women's Farming Cooperative" initiative is a TERRIFIC and a very concrete one!
