The Tenzing Norgay Sherpa Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization based in the USA and voluntarily run by the children of Tenzing Norgay Sherpa. 100% of contributions benefit our work within the Sherpa and Himalayan community. Tenzing devoted much of his life after Everest to raising awareness about Socioeconomic challenges faced within the Sherpa Community in the Everest region of Nepal and in Darjeeling, which he called home. Of particular interest was the welfare of widows and the children of brave Sherpa climbers who died while on mountaineering expeditions, as well as the preservation of the Sherpa culture and access to education. The sole purpose of the Tenzing Norgay Sherpa Foundation is to continue Tenzing’s humanitarian legacy of giving back to society in remote villages in and around the Darjeeling district in India and the Khumbu region of Nepal, home to the Sherpas.
