Mission: We are dedicated to improving the lives of people in indigenous mountain areas, currently focusing on Nepal. The Sherpa people are a tribal group originating from eastern Tibet, whose migrations to Nepal started over 500 years ago. Sherpa cultural origins are preserved in Tibetan writings, yet few Sherpa now learn this language. The Sherpa Education Fund sponsors an education that includes Tibetan classes for Sherpa children and enables world-class tuition in an environment which 'respects, integrates, and preserves' the Sherpa culture - a culture that may vanish without timely assistance.
