Working in partnership with local communities, AHF supports practical, cost-effective education, training, health and sustainability projects improving the work and life opportunities of the Himalayan people, with a focus on women and girls. These projects are combined with practical on-the-ground outcomes in the poorest, most under-resourced areas of the Himalaya across Nepal, Bhutan and Northern India. These programs help to reduce poverty and address human rights like gender equality, child rights and the rights of marginalised groups in rural regions throughout the Himalaya. AHF is a registered Australian NGO with no political or religious affiliation. We are members of the Australian Council for International Development and have accreditation status with the Australian Government Overseas Aid Program (DFAT).
