The Himalayan Project    202 Spring Street    Marion, Massachusetts    02738

The mission of the Himalayan Project is to encourage the cultural preservation of indigenous people of the Himalaya, through education, community development, and social outreach.

The incredible physical beauty of the Himalayan region is staggering, immediately dwarfing anything on the human scale and making one wonder how man could ever have blown his importance so out of proportion.  There is a rhythmic, pulsating and sensual quality to this ancient landscape and culture that in spite of its incredible harshness can still present a sweet tenderness and vulnerability if only one scratches the surface.  For many years now Sally Hunsdorfer has been traveling to Nepal.  On one of her first visits she started a dialogue with the Headmaster of the school in Chaurikharka, a mountain village at 10,000 feet that enjoys stunning panoramic views of majestic peaks and lush valleys.  The conversation focused on the needs of his school and the surrounding community.  Those basic and essential needs - shelter, education and the preservation of a culture barely clinging to existence - have become the primary work of the Himalayan Project.
