Amrit is a guide in the amazing mountains of the Nepali Himalayas. His biggest dream is the education of his two children.

I met Amrit a few years ago in Nepal when I was hiking in the Himalayas, he was our guide, and this story is about him.

Amrit worked in the mountains for many years. He started as a porter and put all of his energy not only into carrying the heavy load, but also in improving his English to be able to become a guide. He used to work non stop during season time to support his family: his wife and his two lovely children.  Amrit had to be away from his family sometimes for months at a time. They lived in a room in a shared house in Kathmandu.

Since the Coronavirus pandemic started two years ago, there is no  work and now all of his savings are gone. His financial situation is worrying, they barely have enough money to put food on a table, while his biggest dream was for his children to get education. Unfortunately, this dream has now been put on hold as he has no money to send children to school.

Amrit is a very hard worker and generous person and the fact he and his family are under that much pressure, breaks my heart.

Let’s help him to realize his dream for his children!
