Ghat is a small village in the Mt. Everest region of Nepal. The trails that surround it lead to some of the more remote villages that were devastated by the 2015 earthquakes. On most days, you will see these trails filled with school children embarking on their two-hour trek to attend the school in Ghat. Most of them bring little to no food.
If they are lucky enough to bring lunch, it is usually nothing more than a packet of noodles. Learning without proper sustenance is difficult most times, if not impossible.
Because we believe that education opens the door to a world of opportunities, the Apa Sherpa Foundation asks for your kindness. All donations made will go to the lunch program and the salary of teachers that feed the minds of the children in the Everest region.

- There are 30 children in need of a hot lunch at the Ghat school
- There are 228 days of school held per year.
- The cost per child, per meal is approximately $1.50 USD
- For a little over $10,000 USD per year, we can make sure they all receive a nutritious local meal consisting of vegetables and Dal Bhat (rice and lentil curry).
