The SHERPA are an ethnic group living mainly in the mountainous regions of eastern Nepal.
Many make their living as porters in the tourism industry as well as in the day-to-day transport of goods from village to village.
Quality footwear is not readily available and is often unaffordable.
Shoes for Sherpas, a project of Colorado Nepal Alliance, works with villages in rural Nepal to provide as much footwear as possible to those living in the region. To date, they have collected, inspected, transported and provided over 3,000 pairs of shoes to Nepal!
Garmont and Shoes for Sherpas have joined forces to develop various activities and initiatives dedicated to supporting the Sherpas of eastern Nepal.
