Sherpa Shepherds always takes serious steps forward for well being of our staff, local culture, climate and all the stake holders. Mountains are our home, our play ground and our birth place and we are the ‘guardians of the Himalayas’. And we take our responsibility for preserving the nature, culture and traditions of Sherpa/mountains for our future generations too. All our activities will be environment friendly, culture friendly and harmonious to any culture. We are committed to protect our mountains, nature, culture and traditions.
Sherpa Shepherds has been continuously contributing to the society, people, and mountains but also to make the whole world a better place and its better future. Our initiatives will benefit the socially excluded and marginalized people from remote areas, preserving mountains and glacial lakes and empowering women in mountaineering. Our social commitment consists not only of supporting people in need but also of taking a proper care of our staff – all our guides and porters are insured and we converted seasonal field staff into full-time paid employees, providing them with a regular source of income, which represents financial safety and security for them and their families. Areas of our contribution are:
Another aspect of our social responsibility is being respectful with the natural and cultural environment by minimizing the negative impact on the ecosystems and within the tribal groups in the communities we work. The mountains are our pride and we venerate them as the abode of the gods. With the constant increase s in the number of visitors, it has boosted the local economy but has also brought an increase in the degradation of the region’s fragile ecology and cultural traditions. We are committed to protect our HOME through empowering mountain communities and conserving mountain ecosystems, to ensure that mountains will continue to provide the essential resources – natural, cultural and inspirational – needed for mankind’s survival on a healthy planet.
