"The Key Teacher Training course goes from strength to strength and was this year further helped by the calmer political situation in Nepal. A total of 33 Key teachers were trained as Teacher Trainers, and they then, with the AHF volunteers, trained in the Australian Himalayan Foundation Refresher Workshops more than 250 Teachers from over 76 schools. This model and program continues to get more and more cost-effective and successful The Australian Volunteer Trainers continue to make a valuable contribution to the effectiveness of this training."
Jim Strang, Project Co-ordinator.

"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"

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.
