Ethical Trekking Nepal
Krishna is a trained sociologist who used to help out at his uncle's trekking business as a guide during his school holidays. Later, he worked for International NGOs but he doesn't like the dependency on donor money and the way the work was done on the ground. He met many street kids during his work trips and decided that he had to do something for them. Since his knowledge was in trekking and tourism, he decided to start a trekking company that will be the source of financial sustainability to the children's home that he and his friends established. He opened 'Ethical Trekking' with the idea of giving guides and porters the best working conditions (full insurance, weight limits and good equipment) and at the same time, provide a great service for travellers. He's extremely community-oriented and has the best interests of his community in mind (by creating local jobs and preventing migration and family separation). The children that "graduate" from the children home are invited to take part in the business, gain work experience and find reasons and skills to stay in Pokhara and support the local community and economy. He is a delightful human being who really does operate from the heart.
