“The people of Nepal took me in when I had nothing and showed me a level of kindness that I have never seen anywhere. I founded SherpaCares (and eventually moved there to better run it) to return the favor, but it is a debt I can never fully repay.”
Mike “Nawang Geljen Sherpa” Salomon
Director and Founder
The fund aims to raise additional funds to bring in food, special oxygen concentrators, and other aid to parents in Kathmandu and rural regions.
All donations are done online with immediate tax deductions paperwork emailed. Updates and photographs will folow.
Many of my clients have given $14,000, but we are still $4000 short.
We rebuilt the Himalayan English Boarding school.
FUND IS CLOSED. FULLY FUNDED!

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.
