About Himalayan Trust New Zealand
Sir Edmund Hillary founded the Himalayan Trust in the 1960s when he built the first schools and hospitals in the Everest region. We follow in his footsteps, working in partnership with local communities to improve education, health care and safe water systems for remote communities in Nepal. The Himalayan Trust works to empower communities and reduce poverty in the Everest region of Nepal.
Himalayan Trust New Zealand (HTNZ) implement’s a range of programmes, the largest of these is our Education programme, which is funded 60% by New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and 40% through HTNZ fundraising. The programme works to improve teaching and learning outcomes through quality education for all children in Soluknumbu from 2019-24. The programme is implemented by two local partners in Solukhumbu: Himalayan Trust Nepal (HTN) and Action for Nepal (AFN); together we work to help local government and schools create a firm foundation for children’s educational journey by ensuring a quality literacy and education programme is in place for early grades, teachers are trained in quality teaching at all levels, and schools are more broadly supported with resources, scholarships and infrastructure to assist the new local government structure as it builds its local education policy amidst operationalising federalisation in Nepal.
