Our Expedition Humanitarian June 2023 main focus was sponsoring and supporting the children of Pangboche Basic school. They are looking smart in theri new summer uniform. it was a honour to meet all the children and theri parents and give out bags full of new uniform. lots of smiles and blessing scarfs from all.
The new school sign which is also the new uniform logo on all the childrens clothing.
At the school handing bags of summer uniform including shoes to all the children, many of the children looked younger than their age due to malnourishment which meant lots of sewing to make the unifom fit. lots of tears of happiness for some it was the first time they had ever owned a pair of shoes.
One of my favourite photos, at only 6yrs old putting is bag of uniform to carry like a Porter. Being a Porter has been the only work available to those who have not had the chance of an education.
All the children with their bags of uniform walking from school to our celebration hot lunch.
Excited children trying on their new uniform at celebration dinner hosted at Highland Sherpa Resort Pangboche all children, teachers comittee and parents invited for a celebration hot lunch of traditional Dhal Bhat and fresh veges all grown outside.

After to getting to know all the parent I found out one of the mothers Charina Kulung Rai is a Everest Marathon runner standing here with her two children. Charina is has now become a fully sponsored athlete. How good is she I asked? 2nd place 2022 and 7th place 2023 due to illness. Impressive Everest Marathon is one of the hardest marathon's in the world!
