Community Support through Sambhav Nepal

Ace the Himalaya fully supports as well as works closely with the social organization Sambhav Nepal Foundation. On a yearly basis, a portion of the proceeds from our company’s revenue goes directly towards Sambhav’s projects, more specifically to cover the maintenance expenses of the state-run Bhairabi School, Dharapani Shool, Sitala School along with 3 other schools in the remote Arupokhari village, northern Gorkha, Nepal.

Till 2017 April 28, Sambhav Nepal has distributed 36,600 kg of food supplies, 220 blankets to the earthquake affected people of Gorkha and 3730 aluminium roofing sheets to 12 community schools in Gorkha, built 6 earthquake damaged houses and 27 drinking water taps in Gorkha and has completed first phase of reconstruction in three earthquake affected schools (Bhairabi Primary School, Devi Jal Kumari Lower Secondary School and Bhawani Higher Secondary School) in Gorkha.

As a travel and trekking company, Ace the Himalaya has designed a number of charity treks conducted throughout the year. The charity trek itinerary intends to combine adventure, philanthropy and a fight for a cause, providing the participant with lasting memories of the Himalayas while allowing them to contribute to a remote Nepalese community.
