The American Himalayan Foundation is dedicated to helping people in the Himalaya who are in need and have no one else. In these remote regions, people often struggle without access to schools or clinics, thousands of young girls are in danger of being sold into modern-day slavery, and traditional ways of life are disappearing. We focus on essential things that can, and do, transform lives - opening doors to education and healthcare, preventing girls from being trafficked, helping families become financially independent, building stronger communities, and keeping ancient cultures alive. Our projects are led by local partners and respond to the priorities of their communities, in a way that respects both tradition and innovation.
