We need your help
to bring the Internet
to Everest.

In 2022, the Internet Society built the highest community network in the world, in the villages of Khunde and Khumjung. This network has since helped connect the villagers to new information, resources, and opportunities, but the majority of the 1,700+ people living in the community still do not have access to the Internet.

USD $100,000 will connect the Sherpas of Khunde and Khumjung to high-speed Internet. Every dollar you give, no matter the amount, will help them reach this goal.

You can change thousands of lives.

How Your Donation Makes a Difference

The villages of Khunde and Khumjung have always been remote, cut off from the world beyond by the mountains that define them. But now, connection to the outside world is the very thing these isolated communities need in order to survive.

The future of trekking and guiding is under threat from climate change—and with it, this traditional source of income for the Sherpa people of Khunde and Khumjung. The Internet heralds promise: the power to provide the opportunities the villagers need to stay connected to the mountains.

With your help and the Internet at their fingertips, the Sherpas of Khunde and Khumjung can find the economic possibilities, education, and healthcare they need to build a better future.
