The American Himalayan Foundation (AHF) is dedicated to helping the people and ecology of the Himalaya. In these remote regions people often live without basic health care and education. Economic pressures have forced environmental degradation and traditional ways of life are in danger of disappearing. The American Himalayan Foundation was founded in 1979 to respond to some of these pressing problems. Our work includes projects in health care, education, cultural preservation and environmental conservation. The AHF supports projects that are on a human scale and that directly benefit people. We deeply respect the Himalayan community and our work responds to their priorities and concerns.
