Adventure Consultants established the Sherpa Future Fund in response to the tragic events that occurred with the Khumbu Glacier Avalanche in 2014 and the Nepal Earthquake and subsequent Base Camp Avalanche in 2015. Adventure Consultants lost nine valued staff members in these events and the Sherpa Future Fund has been established to provide ongoing support in rebuilding the lives of their families left behind and providing education for their children.
Currently the fund is contributing to the education of 13 children and has committed to providing ongoing support until 2030, when the youngest child finishes school.
If you would also like to contribute to the ongoing support of these families you can do so by sending donations directly to the Adventure Consultants Sherpa Future Fund. Click on the Donate tab above to find out how you can contribute.
If you would like to contribute to a fund that supports the families of all Sherpa who have died in these incidents then please donate to the Himalayan Trust, The Juniper Fund or the American Alpine Club Sherpa Support fund.
We thank you for your generosity in caring for these people at this time and please know that these efforts will make a real difference.
Guy Cotter, Suze Kelly and all the team at Adventure Consultants
