Since Anna Elisabeth Bach's first visit to Nepal in 1998, "we" have been active. In the beginning it was a "private project" with medical care, etc. for the Sangye Choe Ling Gompa, the monastery of the buddh. Master Lopoen Tsechu Rinpoche, in Kimdol-Swoyambhu at the Swoyambhu Stupa in the Kathmandu valley in Nepal and to secure two girls a school education. The activities became "bigger", especially in 2006 with the planning for the construction of the Samar Gompa (Buddhist monastery) in the former Kingdom of Lo, called Upper Mustang, in the Nepal Himalayas. The club structure was built with close friends and the Himalaya Projekt e.V. was founded in Germany.
In order to give our activities an official framework, Anna Elisabeth Bach founded the non-profit association "Himalaya Projekt e.V." on November 19, 2006. On behalf of the association, we are now carrying out projects in Nepal or supporting projects that we believe deserve the greatest possible support.
Our work is 100% voluntary and we hope to make a meaningful, if small, contribution in Nepal.
The Nepal Himalaya Sherpa Foundation (NHSF) in Swoyambhu-Kathmandu in Nepal is the patron and manages the projects independently. We support the NHSF in an advisory capacity and can support the NHSF projects from Germany.
