The experience of spending an afternoon with the group of children, girls and boys who live at the Kailash Home is priceless. These children come from families without economic resources from remote mountain areas. In Kailash Home, they have an option to continue studying beyond basic education. Once the first barrier is overcome, the experience is all yours.

English speaking guide
The Kailash Home is not a school, as its name suggests, it provides room and board for sponsored children of different ages from poor families from remote mountain areas. In this way, the children can move to live in Kathmandu while they study, as it is not so much the cost of education as the cost of food and lodging that prevents many schoolchildren from being able to continue their studies.
But Kailash Home is not just about board and lodging. All kinds of support are given to the girls and boys who live there, extracurricular activities, education beyond school, teamwork and solidarity are encouraged. In short, it is a big family and the support that the girls and boys of different ages receive from those in charge as well as from their own classmates is a fundamental part of their success, and some of them have even obtained scholarships to study at Harvard. Although it was initially planned to house 80 children, today it is home to around a hundred and the second phase is already underway.
We usually go in the afternoon when the students have finished school. This is the time when we can share a ball, a game or an informal chat with them once the initial shy has been broken. Naturally, it is an ideal place to go with children and the idea is we all prepare dinner together and then have dinner with some of the children. The experience varies from visit to visit because it is very personal to each person and the energy of the moment, but so far everyone has been delighted.
This visit is unforgettable, the students love to share their time with foreign visitors, although we are always the ones who gain more from the exchange. The cost of the visit covers transport, the accompanying guide, dinner and a small grant for the school. This activity depends on the school calendar, so it is not always available. Please contact us.
This institution was created by the Himalayan Children’s Foundation and has important support, both financially and logistically, from the Mountaineers for Himalayas Foundation, created in Andorra by renowned Andorran, Catalan and Spanish mountaineers and which in Spain is linked to the Edurne Pasabán Foundation.
