Tenzing devoted much of his life after Everest to raising awareness about Socio Economic 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 children of brave Sherpa climbers who died while on mountaineering expeditions, access to healthcare, preservation and celebration of Sherpa culture and access to education – These form our key areas of support and giving.

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.
