Boulderers help Nepalese Porters and The Sharma Fund

Tim Kemple and Adam Stack, two American boulderers have teamed up with Porters Progress, an organisation that helps Nepali mountain porters and their families by running a variety of programs and organising fund raisers. Kemple and Stack, along with BS Productions, produced a bouldering video that features bouldering in Nepal with young Nepalese porters. The video is called Karma and can be seen online at Modump. You can find out more about Porters Progress at their website.

Chris Sharma also does his bit to help others by donating half of his annual competition winnings to send financially underprivileged kids, ages 11 through 18, to climbing camps. You can read about The Sharmafund here.
