Buy a Brick
The land is purchased!
We plan to start building Mountain People House in March 2014.
We still need $ 40,000.- so please Buy a Brick at $ 50.-.
Older children often have to look after small brothers and sisters, whilst their parents work.
Our goal: establish Pre-School facilities (kinder gardens), so older children can go to school.
Porters are the backbone of the Nepali trekking and expedition industry.
They are not always well treated.
Mountain people supports the work of IPPG/PP/KEEP/CAN and others.
The Bhote people live in the shadow of Mt Makalu, an isolated community, with poor basic educational/health facilities. To assist we have two schemes:
Helping Hands - a simple way you can be involved in your own project – act now!
Building Bridges - Cultural involvement and exchange between mountain people.
Join our volunteer programme.
1. Ted Project
Teaching Environment Development in Kathmandu - be a teacher for a day or a month.
2. Residential stays
Work/live in a country village.
Using business principles in aid/developing situations to foster “help to self help” resulting in independence.
Our concept is simple - helping people to help themselves.
We have formulated simple guide lines, so you may organise your own project. These are not rules and regulations – but a menu you may choose from.
