Our founder and Chairman Richard Blum with residents of Upper Mustang.
How we do it
- Bet on people. We find local partners who have the vision and determination to help their communities and we help them grow—with financial, strategic, and technical support.
- Find the leverage. We know the territory and intervene where we can make the greatest impact for the least cost. In the Himalaya, the difference between what exists and what is possible can be enormous, and often costs very little.
- Respect. We respect the priorities, concerns and knowledge of our local partners, and all of our work has community participation.
- Take the long view. We stay committed. Real, sustainable change takes time, effort and trust.
We invite you to be a part of making change happen.
