As our founders began trekking through the Himalayas of Nepal many years ago, they were faced with unspeakable human suffering. They visited areas where only half of children lived to their 8th birthday. On trails leading out of the mountains of Nepal, they witnessed traffickers leading young girls who were to be sold as sex slaves. They visited community after community with no access to education or medical assistance. They could not stand by and do nothing. Some went on to found MountainChild, a USA based non-profit, which addresses the greatest needs within remote Himalayan communities in Nepal. MountainChild focuses on 5 core issues of: education, health, anti-trafficking, child labor, and the environment.
Others began the trekking and travel company MCATT, which is used to support the humanitarian work carried out by MountainChild. Others began the MountainChild Guest House, which also donates proceeds to the humanitarian work of MountainChild. By using MCATT for your travel and trekking needs in and around Nepal, you become a part of our team and play an active role in carrying hope to the children of the Himalayas.
