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.
The main objectives of the Foundation:
- To build schools to provide general education, giving priority to orphaned children and children from destitute families, and vocational training to older children who did not have the opportunity to go to school earlier
- To improve local infrastructure, including building bridges to enable safe travel and small medical clinics.
All children will be taught to speak, read and write languages that will be useful to them, as well as Maths and Information Technology
In addition, older children will receive vocational training to learn skills that will help them find employment and be useful in their daily lives, including:
‘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.
