Himalayan families face an impossible choice for their children:
WITH FAMILY BUT WITHOUT FUTURE
EDUCATED BUT WITHOUT FAMILY
Many Himalayan children are sent away by their parents at age 4 - 6 years old for education in the city.
Without support, they will never see their families again.
We are a non-profit organisation who enable Himalayan children to maintain contact with their families, alongside their right to education,
develop livelihoods for mountain communities,
and provide meaningful exploration
for international trekkers and school groups.
Education & Family
We enable young people to be reconnected with their families in the mountain villages of Western Nepal.
We support and mentor young people through education.
We provide development opportunities for
remote Himalayan communities.
"Inspiring and rewarding,
would change anyone's life."
We invite responsible travellers to trek to Nepal's Himalayas. Our treks enable reintegration for young people to return home to see their parents for the first time in 12 years.
By joining this meaningful travel experience you will helping to financially enable young people, aged 16 - 18 years old, to journey home to some of the most remote villages in the world, whilst keeping them protected and safe.
Trek in the footsteps of the stars of Children of the Snow Land.

The children, journeys and communities we support are featured in the award-winning documentary film, Children of the Snow Land.

"I went to boarding school; but I was eight, and I came home for the holidays and therefore was with my family as I turned from being a little child into a teenager. Imagine not seeing your parents and home for 12 years! The remote mountain villages in Nepal are notoriously difficult to get to; and yet imagine the black and white choice between home life or being educated miles away."
