Nonprofit Overview

Mission: 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.

Results: 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.

Last year I was working in a documentary film in Nepal and I was so fortunate to meet Sunita dd, Scott and the wonderful women in Her Farm.As well as providing a home for girls from disadvantaged backgrounds, empowering these women to be independent, Her farm also has an incredible video & radio studio called Herfarmfilms, where they are inspired to learn filmmaking and radio hosting, to educate and share women's stories all over Nepal. I learnt so much, met inspiring women, and I can't wait to visit them when I'm next in Nepal. I would highly recommend the voluntary experience and for people to support Scott and Sunita dd's wonderful organisation.
