Welcome to the
Himalayan Leaky Foundation
Himalayan Leaky Foundation is a non-profit organisation founded in 2017 to bring real change directly to the people who are in the most need.

Nepal is the only country in the world where the elevation will change from 60 meters to over 8,000 meters above sea level.
