The Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) is dedicated to supporting mountain communities, recognizing that while mountain tourism can be profitable, it also carries significant risks. Each year, many workers on mountain expeditions lose their lives, leaving their families in need of assistance. NMA has been working to provide both immediate support for those affected by such tragedies and to create sustainable long-term solutions to help those impacted by mountaineering accidents in Nepal.
To date, NMA has supported over 300 children with their education, recognizing the importance of education in providing a brighter future for those affected by such tragedies. Currently, NMA is supporting fifty-three students with NRs 6000 per student per month, as well as three disabled mountaineers with varying levels of financial support (NRs 2500, NRs 5000, and NRs 7000).
Despite NMA's efforts, the number of accidents in the mountains continues to increase each year, leaving families in agony. Nevertheless, NMA remains committed to supporting those affected by mountaineering accidents in Nepal, recognizing the importance of providing sustainable, long-term solutions to those in need.
