Hike for Help

Hike for Help is a small, local Nonprofit that does public sanitation and community development in the Khumbu Valley (Everest Region) of Nepal in partnership with Colorado School of Mines. Since its inception, Hike for Help has overseen the construction of public restrooms, the restoration of local trails, and the development of a public workshop to build and sell local crafts. These projects, along with many others, have allowed for Economic and Social advancement of the Sherpa and other Local people



Hike for Help is a non-profit organization established in 2011, focused on implementing self-sustaining service projects in impoverished regions of Nepal. With this goal in mind, Hike for Help coordinates cultural treks to the Khumbu valley to provide support for local villages in their pursuit of development.

Hike for Help projects rely on community input and action from start to finish. Our motto, “Self Enabling Help” drives our project strategy. All projects ideas are generated by community members through small committees and local government officials.
