Update on Little Sherpa Foundation
A chance encounter between a Scotsman and a Buddhist monk in 2014 changed their lives forever. James Lamb tells how they set up a charity and a trekking agency after the avalanche above Everest Base Camp. This will be highlighted by clips from BBC’s Adventure Show. As the charity grew and the trust between the Sherpas and James was cemented it became clear how much their culture was at risk. This led to a documentary being made to highlight this concern, “Sherpas Speak” which was the People’s Choice at DMFF.
Find out how the charity and work to protect the Sherpa culture has progressed over the intervening years.
