Philanthropic Tour Nepal
- Per Person
Philanthropic or Corporate Social Responsibility trekking tours in Nepal
Our target is to help villages below the Everest region develop to have a better future. This helps the business houses to participate in Philanthropic/Corporate Social Responsibility by giving back to the less fortunate communities in remote Nepal. This type of trip allows the participants to experience cultural immersion by going off the beaten tracks next to no tourists. It also offers the trekkers a very memorable experience with a feel-good factor.
We will be trekking in a pristine environment while enjoying pure, unspoiled areas of Nepal, and we will take immense care not to ruin the villages while keeping their beautiful culture intact. We will also get to see some big mountains such as Everest 8850m, Lhotse 8501 m, Makalu 8463 m, and Kanchenjunga 8586 m on clear days.
- Bring charity for various projects in the remote villages that are out of the tourist trail below Lukla. On the return flight, the airline does a mountain flight before bringing the group back to Kathmandu.
- Every six months, another group from the Sponsor Company comes for a CSR trek (if possible, we can make other arrangements to provide a progress report) and checks on the previous projects’ progress.
- We will bring out rubbish from the villages, and the airlines we fly will bring out the garbage to Kathmandu.
- Have discussions with villagers to ask what help/priority aid is needed.
- Help women’s group from a village with funding. They collect membership fees, which give loans for interest. With the profit from the investments, they buy land to expand their local school, etcetera. A few years back, they offered all the money in their account to help a fellow woman get treatment for her failed kidneys.
- Women Empowerment.
- Help sponsor girls from low-income families to receive education in an excellent private school in Kathmandu. Have a plan to train bright students in the U.S, perhaps even providing them with employment with Sponsor Company.
- Pay for the installation of electricity to more impoverished families.
