The First Himalayan Olympics Approaching!

Himalayan Olympics begins on the February 18th!

An exciting event is just on the horizon – the first annual Himalayan Olympics. Over 15 schools have been invited and over 200 students will be participating in a three day sports and games tournament. Competing teams will be equally composed of both boy and girl participants. They will compete in a range of events that challenge them physically, mentally, and artistically. Events range from soccer and badminton, to chess and speech, to song and dance. Helambu Project has donated sports equipment to all participating schools and prize money for the winning school. The winning team will be able to spend the money on school related events and materials, and all participants will receive certificates for competing.

This is the first regional inter-school event in Helambu and a rarity in Nepal. All the participants are very excited and have been practicing their skills.

Helambu Project is pleased to be partnering with our friends the Helambu Education and Livelihood Project (HELP), a local NGO, and MondoChallenge Foundation, who will be covering food related expenses for the student’s stay. Good luck to all of the contestants!

If you want to contribute, there is still time!
