- Helping mountain people to help themselves.
An independent, non-profit, non-political, non-religious and cross cultural organization registered in Nepal. Originally consisting of mountain enthusiasts from Norway helping mountain people in Nepal to help themselves, the organization now has members from over 30 countries. Many of those receiving support fund and manage their own projects along Mountain People guidelines – in Nepal and in other mountain countries.
Mountain People has completed over 500 grass-root projects in Nepal during the last 30 years – based on a simple philosophy: “We provide the materials, they do the work!”
Bergans is supporting the efforts of Mountain People to build schools and offer essential health care in Nepal. We also meet all administrative costs (in Norway and Nepal), so that income generated and donations received go 100% to the designated project.
