Five years’ plan
Khumjung High school was among the first of sir Edmund Hillary’s projects with the Himalayan Trust. Built in 1961 at the request of local Sherpa villagers, today the school is an important institution in the surrounding Khumbu region serving the nearby villages of Khumjung, Khunde, Namche, Phortse, Pangboche, Gumela and Thame. Today Khumjung is a thriving school of around 300 students and 20 teaching staff. The children aged from 5 to 18 maintain their traditional spirited character and continue to have a great passion for learning.
However in order to successfully preserve the excellent standard that Khumjung High school is proud of several pressing issues need to be addressed. We require financial aid for the following essential projects.
