Ever since the 1960s when Sir Edmund Hillary built the first schools and hospitals in the Solukhumbu region in the foothills of Everest, the Himalayan Trust has been working with local communities to provide better healthcare and education.

With your support, we are helping communities rebuild after the devastating 2015 earthquakes, rebuilding over 150 classrooms, as well as toilet blocks and student hostels at 33 schools in the Solukhumbu.

We are improving the health and well-being of people in remote mountain villages by helping people to access medical care and investing in safe drinking water.

We are opening up new opportunities for young people by improving the quality of schooling and training. We provide teaching resources and equipment, training for teachers and scholarships for local school children.

None of this would be possible without the kind support of people like you.

More about us

Sir Edmund Hillary founded the Himalayan Trust in 1960, and ever since then we have been working alongside our friends and partner organisations in Nepal to help the people of the Everest region with health, education and general wellbeing.

We are an international non-profit humanitarian organisation working in the Solukhumbu region of Nepal—an area where Sir Ed first set off to climb Mt Everest and where he ended up spending many years over his lifetime.
