The Mountain Fund girls

One of the things we are most proud of at The Mountain Fund and The Mountain Volunteer is the number of jobs we've created for young women over the years. It's not easy findind work in Nepal with estimates that as many as 40% of young people are unemployed. Given the patriachal system of Nepal, jobs for young women are hard to find.

We think our girls are great and our volunteers in Nepal think so too.

This week a group of volunteers in Nepal traveled to a rural community to take part in a child immunization program.

Conducting camps in rural villages is time consuming but it's the only way to reach many of the children.
