Himalaya Project NFP is a Chicago-based, all-volunteer, 501(c)3 charity, dedicated to providing education and healthcare to this underserved Himalayan region of Dolpo, Nepal. The people in this region of Nepal have maintained their Buddhist practices, culture and identity for over a millennium. But due to recent socioeconomic and geopolitical factors, they are left without access to basic health care.
We are going to change that.
Rather than send doctors from the West to the East, our mission is to empower local communities by providing vocational training in Tibetan medicine to local community members in the region.
By supporting our project, you will help implement a 5-year school to train individual practitioners in traditional Tibetan medicine in Dolpo.
You will ensure that these underserved mountain communities in Nepal have access to affordable healthcare for a lifetime.
You will help preserve the unique and rare practices of Tibetan medicine so they are not lost to the world.
