The Cause

Snowland Journeys is a non-profit organisation which supports Himalayan children, helping them to maintain contact with their families, alongside their right to education, and develops livelihoods for mountain communities. 

There is no education in high Himalayan regions of Nepal and no teachers willing to live in such remote areas without sanitation, transportation or communication, so many parents send their children away to school in the city at just 5 years old. For 10 years or more the children are unable to see or speak to their parents, due to the remoteness of the villages. Through their Reintegration Programme, Snowland Journeys enables these young people to return home to their parents, communities and culture. 

They provide emotional and physical preparation of young people and families for reintegration, starting several years before their reunion. The programme includes social work support, cultural awareness, personal development, guided trekking expeditions home, and training in wilderness first aid, health & hygiene, sustainability, conservation and continued safe access to the mountains. 

Experience shows that after reintegration the young people go on to help develop their villages and benefit local communities.

Snowland Journeys also helps build livelihoods for Himalayan communities so that in future children can be educated at home.

Snowland Journeys’ award-winning feature documentary, Children of the Snow Land, tells the story of these young people as they return home to parents they haven’t seen for 12 years. View at www.snowlandjourneys.com/watch-film.
