Porters Children Education program:
Five years after the establishment of the company Churen Himal Treks came up with the novel awareness of being socially responsible by educating the underprivileged children’s who are deprived of their right to education owing to poverty, household works, or lack of schooling facility. Since decade with the slogan “Making Life Better”, Churen Himal Treks has been funding for the education of the Children of porters who have been long working with the company. The objective of this program is to afford school level education to the eligible porter's children until the high school in a reputed government institution endowing them with a better life perspective.
Till date we have more than 20 eligible kids from different mountainous regions of Nepal including Solu Khumbu district (the foothills of Mt. Everest), Rasuwa district (the valley of Langtang that met with the tragic catastrophe in 2015 earthquake) and Dolakha district (the second calamitous area during an earthquake). Every year Mountain Monarch contributes a sensible amount of deposit into the ‘Porters Children Education Fund’ that proficiently carries out the overall education compensation of these kids.
‘Making Life Better’ program is confident of educating more children in the years to come so that we can position these unfortunate kids into the light of enlightenment from the darkness of innocence. We truly believe in the right to education and it’s been very wisely said ‘children without education are like a bird without wings’ hence Churen Himal Treks is determined to accomplish this social responsibility of educating the innocent minds.
After the devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake that befell on 25th April 2015, Nepal was undeniably more than ever in desperate need of support. We were certainly traumatized, but in the midst of multiple aftershocks and the uncertainty, Churen Himal Treks sent its survey team to assess the need of the community. Assessments were made to rehabilitate local shelters, health clinic, Tent and drinking water supply. Churen Himal Treks managed to collect an inspiring contribution from national and international friends (our clients) which indeed played a fundamental role in the accomplishment of our re-enactment and healing program for the sufferers. Through this relief fund, we supplied necessary materials and provided all field staff who gave their best with consistency and managed to rehabilitate more than 20 temporary houses, one reasonable size health post and two schools.
