The Sherpa Education Fund (SEF) finances a first-class education for a group of Sherpa students who hearken from the rural, mountainous areas that surround Mt. Everest in Nepal. It is the hope of the Sherpa Education Fund and its sponsors that through education, these students will enhance their communities by sharing knowledge and generating resources in the future.
Let us work in partnerships between rich and poor to improve the opportunities of all human beings to build better lives.
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.
One of the most powerful tools for empowering individuals and communities is making certain that any individual who wants to receive a quality education can do so.
SEF students live in a dormitory setting on the campus of the Kathmandu Valley Higher Secondary School. They study a variety of subject areas, including language, literature, math, science, social studies, accounting, and economics.
Sherpa Education Fund students are generously supported by a group of committed sponsors all over the globe. Many of these sponsors possess a passion for the mountains of Nepal and its people. It is through this caring spirit that the SEF students continue to thrive in their schooling in Kathmandu.
