American Himalayan Foundation

AHF was founded over 30 years ago to help people in the Himalaya who were in need and had no one else, and that principle still guides us every day. What we do is basic: we make change - positive, tangible change - happen. We build and support schools and students; train doctors and fund hospitals; care for children and elders; plant trees and restore sacred sites. We help Tibetans rebuild and sustain their culture both in exile and in Tibet.
Stop Girl Trafficking in Nepal
 
Every year in Nepal thousands of girls, some as young as 9, are trafficked into exploitation and sexual abuse, their lives destroyed. We can prevent - and prevention is key - this modern slavery by educating girls. We go to the villages, find the girls most at risk, and give them all they need to stay in school - and safe. Education gives them confidence, value to their families and a future. The cost of this switch from dread to hope: $100 a year. That's how we Stop Girl Trafficking. Will you? project reportread updates from the field
Surgery for Children with Disabilities in Nepal
 
In Nepal, medical care is often out of reach both physically and financially, and a child's untreated burn or broken bone can lead to a lifetime of disability. Through a combination of surgery, physical therapy, prosthetics and a big dose of TLC, the team at the Hospital and Rehabilitation Center for Disabled Children helps thousands of children walk (and play!) every year. project reportread updates from the field
Earthquake Rebuilding in Nepal
 
In 2015, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake and hundreds of powerful aftershocks rocked Nepal. More than 510,000 homes were destroyed and almost 9,000 lives lost. In the immediate aftermath, the American Himalayan Foundation delivered emergency supplies and temporary shelter. Now, our priority is rebuilding, and rebuilding well. project reportread updates from the field
Sherpa Family Fund
 
A deadly avalanche on Mt. Everest recently claimed the lives of 16 Sherpas in the worst climbing accident in the mountain's history. In response, the American Himalayan Foundation has created the Sherpa Family Fund to support the families and educate the children left behind. project reportread updates from the field
