The Australian Himalayan Foundation
The Australian Himalayan Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life of those living in remote areas of the Himalaya. They work in partnership with these communities to help the most disadvantaged meet their needs through integrated improvements in education, health and the environment. In 2016 the AHF rolled out vocational training projects for women from disadvantaged backgrounds with our in-country partner RENEW. These programs have been designed to provide weaving and tailoring skills that will hopefully lead to employment opportunities for girls coming from our existing school support program. They focus on economic empowerment for those from rural and remote regions and aim to alleviate poverty through fostering new skills and building financial independence.
Kathmandu Summit Club
The Kathmandu Summit Club Community is a group of people who love the outdoors. They believe the world is an invitation and they are passionate about exploring their own boundaries. Wherever in the world that takes them. Kathmandu have teamed up with The Australian Himalayan Foundation to help raise awareness and funds, and to educate and introduce people to the philosophy of giving back to the communities in which we travel through.
