The Maya Sherpa Project (MSP) is a non-profit foundation (501c3) that is dedicated to contributing resources that will sustain the well-being of the Sherpa communities in the Solukhumbu region of the Himalayas.
The focus on support is with education, health care, and environmental issues. However, its mission is not only to engage peoples in learning about, and upholding, the traditions and culture of the Sherpas in Nepal, but also to create an exchange of cultural resources. To this end, the MSP strives to introduce the Western culture to the many and precious gifts and wisdom of the Sherpas of the Solukhumbu: their openheartedness, determination, compassion, and – most famously – gaiety of spirit.*
