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.

The Global Mountain Fund is one of the best non-profits I have worked with to set up a faculty-led study abroad experience for a university group. 13 of us traveled to Nepal for 2 weeks recently with Scott and Sunita as our hosts and we could not have been better taken care of. From the visits to the medical clinics in Kathmandu to the Chitwan and Pokhara adventures, the Mountain Fund was there to assure great lodging and true Nepali experiences. In addition, the time we spent up in Manku village at the Farm was the highlight of the trip and we will be extending our time there next time we visit.

I was fortunate enough to spend two weeks in Nepal and had a blast! Scott and Sunita were the best hosts and made sure that we had everything we needed to be comfortable while in country. They set up all of our excursions and ensured that we were able to experience the beautiful Nepalese culture. Likewise, they took us to Her Farm where we were able to meet the amazing women that Scott and Sunita have aided in overcoming very difficult situations. My group and I were only at the farm for a few days, but in that short amount of time the sisters and children and the farm became a second family. It was a truly amazing experience, and I am so grateful to all Scott and Sunita did for us. They are gracious hosts and very caring people. Will definitely reach out to them and the Global Mountain Fund again when I return to Nepal!

From my own personal experiences and also from what I have researched the Global Mountain Fund is an incredible resource for the development of farming, teaching and medical assistance. Under the leadership of Mr Scott MacLennan the Mountain Fund has continually grown to be able to helping folks who would otherwise struggle.

I've been working with Scott at the Mountain Fund for years, and I'm constantly amazed at the number of great projects he has going for the Mountain Fund at any given time. The work they do is pretty amazing, and seeing all the pictures of good results is always great. Someday I hope to actually manage to volunteer and make a trip over to see things first hand.
