Friends in High Places is on a mission to help earthquake victims rebuild their lives and livelihoods. Through education we are helping to provide new opportunities, from sponsoring children to attend school to training young men and women as guides and porters or teaching yak farmers how to make cheese. We are connecting people in this tiny pocket of the Himalayas with new friends around the world, setting up micro businesses and giving them access to new markets. We are employing locals as guides, porters, hosts and cooking teachers. We are making friends in high places and empowering the people of Langtang to rebuild their lives.
