Low-caste villagers determine the issues they want addressed, and we respond: educational support to keep children in school, a maternal health program to stem maternal and infant deaths, and income-earning opportunities for widows.
Heart of Himalaya
In a cold and unforgiving land at the western fringe of the Himalaya, we are helping mountain communities gain access to education and healthcare while protecting the traditional culture that has made them strong.
One school at a time, communities are rebuilding their lives from the rubble of the 2015 earthquake. Education, with a special focus on girls, is the surest path out of poverty for these high mountain people.
