Sir Edmund Hillary founded the Himalayan Trust in the 1960s when he built the first school in the small village of Khumjung. Every year, Sir Edmund Hilary trekked in the areas of his aid work, evaluating what had been done, consulting with local people and planning for the future. For Sir Edmund Hilary, his work in the region was a labour of devotion, friendship and respect for the people of the Himalayas.
