The children of the Foundation

In twenty-two years, the Foundation has developed six Sherpa cultural projects in the valleys of Everest and Makalu (renovation of chörtens mills and monasteries). Most importantly, it has helped to fully educate 34 orphaned children (21 boys, 13 girls) whose fathers have died in an Himalayan expedition.

Today, 14 have already joined the workforce. Five, in total, already received a bachelor’s degree thanks to Hélène Berr scholarships:
