Over the holidays I have had the pleasure of meeting Lhakkpa Tshiring Sherpa on my hike through the Himalaya. Lhakpa is not only any expert trekking guide and climber from Lukla but he also dedicates a great deal of his time and own resources to run a charity group called the Himalayan Education Charity Foundation.

We are a non government, non profit organisation which main aim is to provide education opportunities to poor, needy, struggling and orphaned children.
We give the gift of hope to the poor. We help people get back on their feet, give hope and economic opportunity to families that live on $1 a day.
We provide support and financial assistance to community initiatives that benefit the poor. Our charity mainly focuses in the remote region of Solukhumbu, where many treks and expeditions towards Mt Everest begin.
There are lots of children who can't afford to go to school in the mountain districts in Nepal, due to do work to help support their families. Our charity is committed to help those people we believe are most in need in the remote region.
HECF is a volunteer run charity dedicated to help support the community and provide education opportunities to the Himalayan children and poor families climb out of poverty and into a happy, productive and sustainable life.
We believe the world can be a better place if we all give a helping hand.
