  • Why Nepal?
    Why Nepal?

    Sherpa Adventure Gear was founded in May of 2003 by Tashi Sherpa, as a living memorial to the unsung heroes of Mt. Everest and to provide social and economic support to his home country. In this spirit, we strive to improve the lives of the people of Nepal through steady employment, quality working conditions and educational opportunities for future generations.

  • Why Education?
    Why Education?

    We believe Nepal’s youth are the key to future. While access to education and literacy rates in Nepal improve every year, the number of children who attend and graduate from secondary school (grades 5-12) and beyond are low, especially for young girls.

  • Why Women?
    Why Women?

    While many of the young men leave Nepal to send income home, a majority of women and children remain. We see an opportunity to provide women with flexible opportunities for full time or supplemental income.

    Men are leaving Nepal To Work:

    25%

    of Nepal’s GDP comes from abroad

     

    95%

    of the overseas employment permits are given to men
