THE SHERPA HEART IN ACTION
Paldorje Education Fund
Since many Sherpa climbers are gravely injured or lose their lives while working in the mountains, we give a proportion of every sale to the Paldorje Education Foundation for scholarships and much-needed programs to benefit Sherpa children. By wearing Sherpa gear, you do a genuine kindness to the families of Nepal.
The Paldorje Education Foundation is supported by Sherpa Adventure Gear and the welcome kindness of friends. In Nepal, where many children grow up in remote mountain villages deprived of basic education, it is our mission to help those in the next generation find their way to a brighter future. By doing this, we honour the dreams of our elders to make a better world.
The Paldorje Education Foundation envisions a world where all Sherpa children are educated through college and enjoy a good choice of careers. With proceeds generated by our business, the Foundation sponsors more than 20 children through elementary and high school and four students in college undergraduate programs. Seeing their smiles, we know that our hearts have guided us to the right place.
