The Greater Himalayas Foundation 2014 Community Leadership Award is awarded to Mr. Dorji Tsering Sherpa. Dorji volunteers his time between two nonprofit organizations in Nepal – Curry Without Worry and the SKY Memorial Foundation.
Dorji’s daughter was killed in a plane crash in 2010. This led Dorji and two other parents to create the SKY Memorial Foundation in Nepal. Through the Foundation, they are supporting local village schools and health clinics.
Dorji is also actively involved with Curry Without Worry, which is a non profit social organization feeding the hungry in Kathmandu every Tuesday. Curry Without Worry members and volunteers feed hungry street children, beggars, old men and women, students, porters, and those in need.
The Chairperson of The Greater Himalayas Foundation – Mrs. Phurba Sherpa gave the Community Leadership Award 2014 to Mr. Dorji Tsering Sherpa on a Tuesday after Curry Without Worry’s usual feeding program in Durbar Square, Kathmandu.
