Our research has revealed a number of
causes that keep the people living in remote
Himalayan villages in a cycle of suffering and
poverty. We call these our 5 Core Issues.
24,000 children die before the age of 5 every year in Nepal
In Nepal, an estimated 229,000 people are in modern day slavery and 23,600 individuals are trafficked, missing or victims of an attempted trafficking each year
Education breaks the cycle of suffering and leads to lasting transformation
Work starts at age 5 and keeps children from attending school
Erosion together with antiquated farming techniques lead to a crop loss of 40%
