Sherpa is adventure gear with a purpose
Our vision is to inspire lives of adventure by exploring new lands and opening minds through learning. We’re on a mission to help educate the girls and boys in Nepal. Every item you buy funds a school day for a child in Nepal. When you wear Sherpa Adventure Gear, you’re helping to teach a child and create opportunity for a new generation.
This is where your support is key
Giving children the tools that they need to stay in the school system has wide-reaching benefits.
Literacy rates in Nepal are staggeringly low. We know when a child learns how to read and write, they are able to better control their future. Our goal is to foster lifelong learning through independent reading, comprehension and writing skills.
We have partnered with globally recognized charity, Room to Read. They have been working in Nepal for 20 years to provide the tools schools, teachers and students need to succeed. We are working specifically with their literacy program in primary schools, which provides:
- Quality Materials & Learning Environments: Transforming schools into child-friendly learning environments with teaching materials and libraries full of locally written and illustrated children’s books.
- Equipping Teachers with Tools & Training: Providing professional training for teaching reading and writing skills as well as library management and activities. Following up with on-site coaching and assessments to ensure educators can effectively apply their newfound skills and knowledge.
- Community Engagement: Collaborating with local governments, schools, communities and families to ensure they understand the importance of literacy and how they can play a role in enabling students to achieve their full potential.
