The Everest Mera Foundation (EMF) is a registered charitable NGO in Nepal. Our primary concern is the hundreds of orphan children from the Mahakulung Region of Eastern Nepal who have lost their parents to the Everest tourism industry, mostly working as porters on the treacherous slopes of the world’s tallest peak.
We are providing these children, who are often forgotten and neglected by the rest of the country, with quality educational opportunities to reshape their futures. We are transforming Nepal’s poorest children into tomorrow’s leaders. We believe that an education can turn a child into a responsible and capable citizen. We believe that a responsible and capable citizen has the potential to lift an entire family out of poverty. We believe that an educated generation has the power to change a whole society.
Situated on the lap of Mt. Everest, the Mahakulung region is an exquisitely beautiful land. Yet, it exists in the shadow of the Everest tourism industry. We at EMF are supporting the helpless children over-shadowed by Mt. Everest to develop the necessary skills, confidence and integrity needed to create change in their communities.
