HEBS – The Himalayan English Boarding school rebuilding fundraising is complete.
Thank you all for your generous support. If it were not for the many donors, 23 volunteers, corporate sponsors, International Relief teams, and CFI, we could not have completed this amazing feat.
Now the children (including many orphans) of the Everest region of Nepal will be able to get both an English education, while still keeping their local language and customs and family connections.
Please check here for updates about the school’s reconnection and expansion and to see and hear the impact of your efforts.
You have not only rebuilt a model school but begun the process of saving the languages of these Tibetan – based people from extinction. When a language dies, so does its culture.
