Ed Hillary worked with the people of the Mt Everest region of Nepal to help fulfil their educational, health, economic and cultural aspirations. Everything he did was a collaboration with the local people and at their request. He built 30 schools, 2 hospitals, 12 village clinics, 3 airstrips and provided thousands of educational scholarships. Ed Hillary partnered with people around the world to establish foundations to support this work and these organisations will be among those that we will support. They include foundations in the USA, Canada, the UK, Germany, Australia and NZ. Our charitable activity will include supporting programmes in the Himalayas.
SUPPORTING YOUNG PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD IN ADVENTUROUS PURSUITS
Ed Hillary discovered his love of mountaineering as a schoolboy in New Zealand's rugged outdoors. His first taste of adventure had a profound effect on his life. After climbing Mt Everest he encouraged young people to learn and develop through a range of adventurous activities. Some of our charitable donations will go towards supporting outdoor activities for young people, providing experiences that can change their lives.
“IF YOU HAVE PLENTY AND SOMEONE ELSE HAS NOTHING; THEN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!”
“I don't know if I particularly want to be remembered for anything. But there's no doubt that the building of schools and medical clinics has given me more satisfaction than a footprint on a mountain.”
