Hi friends and family,
this is an attempt to gather donations for the non-profit organisation The Moutain Institute.
Why this campaign?
Commercial mountaineering has damaged the people and nature in and around mountains across the world.
And my friend, Mohamed, is a passionate mountaineer and has witnessed the damages caused first hand. We would like to encourage you to donate to The Mountain Institute to support their projects. Here is their mission:
"The Mountain Institute partners with mountain people to transform their livelihoods, protect their cultures and thus conserve vital natural resources for the planet."
- RETAMA “Restoring Ancestral Technologies and Water Management” - Restoring ancient water management systems in remote Andean communities
- The Scaling Up Mountain Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) Program’s project in Peru - Restoring wetland and grassland ecosystems in the Reserve
- Ancestral Technologies and Climate Change project - Helping to restore the wetlands, peatlands and native grasslands of the puna ecosystems in the central Andes
- Medicinal and Aromatic plants (MAPs) - Teaching mountain farmers in remote areas of Nepal’s Himalayas to cultivate and sell medicinal and aromatic plants
