Education in the Himalaya

Quality education is a pathway out of poverty for many. For over 15 years the Australian Himalayan Foundation, in partnership with local NGO REED Nepal, has followed in the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary to deliver teacher training & quality education initiatives. Our current project provides inclusive, quality education for thousands of students in the remote, impoverished area of Solukhumbu, Nepal. During Covid-19 lockdown, we launched a ‘School of the Air’ via radio, an innovative way of providing distance learning opportunities for an estimated 1.2 million children via FM radios, workbooks and teacher mobilisation.
