Other major goals have been to fund a school library with Nepali, Tibetan and English books and to initiate a scholarship fund for village children whose families cannot afford the $10-$20 per month that it costs to send a child to school.  At the Chaurikharka School, students learn everything from reading, writing and arithmetic to science and geography.  The mission of the school is to nurture self-motivated students - and teachers - who yearn for knowledge and share a common desire to preserve their ancient culture.  The curriculum prepares students for the challenges of both traditional village life and the fast-changing world that surrounds Chaurikharka.
The Himalayan Project is helping to raise critical support for the expansion of one of only two schools in the Everest region that go through grade 10.  The school, founded by Sir Edmund Hillary, is attended by hundreds of Sherpa children - some of whom trek up to three hours a day to attend classes.  The Himalayan Project has raised funds to construct an enclosure that will shelter the entire school during the many months of the year when inclement weather reigns:  monsoons in the summer and snow in the winter.
