About the Tendi Sherpa Foundation

The Tendi Sherpa Foundation aids remote communities in Nepal where existing financial support, whether from other charitable bodies or the Nepalese Government, is minimal or non-existent.

Our main objectives:

  • To provide financial support to families who have suffered the death of the breadwinner while working in the mountains
  • To provide education to orphaned children
  • To replace open cooking fires with smokeless ovens
  • To improve local infrastructure, including paths and bridges, to enable safe travel
  • To facilitate basic medical care to remote communities

Our Logo

‘Building Bridges’ represents both the emotional bridges between the supporters of the Foundation and the remote communities in Nepal that their donations support and the physical bridges the Foundation builds to enable safe travel over difficult and dangerous river crossings where makeshift bridges – and people – are swept away every year in the monsoon floods.

‘Funding Futures’ simply encapsulates the difference the Foundation’s funding of schools and education in remote Nepalese communities will make to the future of the children it can help.

Both aims are represented in the image of children walking to school crossing a well built bridge with the sun rising over the mountains. A new dawn.
