The American Himalayan Foundation is a non-profit humanitarian foundation that supports education, health care, cultural preservation, and environmental projects in the Himalayan region, primarily in Nepal and in the Tibetan refugee communities in Nepal and India. AHF also funds housing for the indigent elderly, refugees, and abandoned children in these areas, and supports humanitarian projects inside Tibet. Major projects include anti-trafficking for poor girls in rural Nepal; support for a world-renowned children's orthopedic hospital in Kathmandu; a large cultural restoration project in the ancient kingdom of Upper Mustang, Nepal; and a long-time partnership with the Himalayan Trust to build and maintain schools and hospitals, restore sacred sites, and initiate reforestation in Solukhumbu, Nepal, near Mount Everest. AHF's work in the Tibetan exile community focuses on helping refugees with survival as well as with efforts to preserve their culture. himalayan-foundation.org
