We are trekking guides from New Zealand and Nepal and lead expeditions through the Himalaya. The Nepalese are wonderfully humble and caring folk who constantly make our trekking tours magic by sharing their homes, culture and friendship. Active Hearts was formed to build our local guides and porters school libraries and assist with other small community projects. We were due to open our first library May 1st in the remote village of Satobate 100km north of Kathmandu however the village was destroyed by the devastating earthquakes in Nepal on April 25th and May 12th.

All funds and resources were initially channeled towards the villages immediate survival. The focus was on emergency shelter, food, water, sanitation and medical assistance. We became an international team of friends with the same purpose. On the ground as a front line aid and relief team uninhibited by red tape and politics.

We managed to accomplish some amazing things in the months following the quakes. Nothing would have been possible without the very generous people around the world who donated and fund raised for us.

We have now opened three libraries, in Satobate, Khule and Sidhing villages. We have provided medicines and supplies, distributed donated clothing, quilts, laptops, books, toys and messages of support. We led an international group of trekking friends through the remote lower Solu Khumbu regions.

Exciting times for all as the Hearts team of volunteers, our network of contacts and suppliers on the ground and the completed projects continues to grow. As it has been from day one, our focus is on the little ones. The children specifically through education and health projects.

Nothing is possible without our kind donors. Please consider donating to the Active Hearts family.

Peace and love my friends

Thank you and Namaste
