Nepal 65L Backpack & Kumari Shelllearn more >
Health & Ed 4 Nepal is a non-profit dedicated to supporting the people of Kumari, Nepal. Since its inception in 2009, Health & Ed 4 Nepal has improved the plight of the Tamang tribe by opening and operating a medical clinic and improving the local primary school (Shree Nepane).
How We Found Them
Tribes who live closer to the Himalayas often receive more assistance than those further from tourist areas. We wanted to work in an area of Nepal that does not receive much attention.
We found Health and Ed 4 Nepal through a friend who knew Jagat Lama, the founder. Jagat’s vision of assisting people in his hometown of Kumari, struck a chord with us.
How We Hope to Help
It costs $0.20 per day for a child to attend the Shree Nepane Primary School. That’s $150 per month for a teacher of 25 children. With profits earned from the sale of our 65L Nepal pack, we will pay the monthly salary for a teacher at the school, and we hope to do much more in the future.
