The Teacher Training Program in the SoluKhumbu region of the Nepalese Himalaya goes from strength to strength.  Approx 300 teachers came to Salleri for training with Jim Strang, the project corodinator and a team of volunteer teachers

Here is a recent quote from an AHF teacher volunteer about their experience of the training sessions

"Following the Key Teacher Workshop the increase in Key Teacher confidence was marked. During the year Key Teachers have visited and supported the schools in their cluster, and the contribution they have made has been significant. We continue to be encouraged by the efforts teachers are making in their classrooms to improve their own teaching and the learning of the children"

How was it this funded?

Thanks to hundreds of tiny donations from these online businesses and their customers.

Over the years, thousands of travellers have visited the Himalaya. For many it is an opportunity to trek beneath the world's highest peaks and to appreciate some of the world's most hospitable cultures. Yet the Himalaya is not just a vast adventure playground. For the local communities it is anything but easy – with access to basic health and education services often out of reach.

Following in the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary who was devoted to bringing education to the Sherpa people, the AHF is working in partnership with local communities to help the people of the Himalaya through improvements in health, education and conservation.

Giving to the AHF is an opportunity to give something back.
