The bird that gave back

This Christmas you can give the gift of education and make a world of difference to children in Nepal.

Make a $10 donation and you'll receive a woolen bird ornament to take home or give to a loved one. Inspired by the national bird of Nepal, the Himalayan Monal features beautiful vibrant colours and are handmade by artisans in Nepal.

100% of your donation will be passed on to the Australian Himalayan Foundation.

Find yours online or in select stores. Available while stocks last.


How it helps

Getting a good start in reading and writing is an essential foundation for future learning. Yet literacy levels throughout Nepal remain low, preventing too many bright, keen and deserving young people from fulfilling their potential.

By donating to the Himalayan Trust, you can help provide the best story books and literacy materials to kids and provide ongoing literacy coaching to teachers.

With a nurturing and inspiring environment, children can learn and thrive. A good education means a brighter future and the ability to empower themselves and their families.

Your donation will help reduce poverty and build the resilience of local communities in Solukhumbu in the Everest foothills.


Last year your support helped raise $45,000 for the Australian Himalayan Foundation and Himalayan Trust. Get your Himalayan Monal
