RHC is a humanitarian non-profit organization committed to assist top mountain people known as Bhote, Sherpa, Dolpo generally Tibetans Socially, Economically, Physically, Educationally, and Spiritually in the top Himalayas of Nepal and beyond. We do this work by partnering with government, local organizations, international organizations, fellowships, and individuals in order to be able to address Social, Education, physical, livelihood, and emergency needs in the highest mountain regions of Nepal and beyond.
Life is hard for the many mountain people who live in the top Himalayas without access to electricity, health clinics, drinkable water, or telephone. To reach the villages, one has to walk for many days over rugged terrain hills. Children either do not attend a school or must live in a hostel near the school most of the year. The top mountains areas are very backward in terms of development for their basic needs.
RHC aims to help mountain people to discover their own vision, skills, and resources to move from poverty to abundant living. RHC is committed to develop people’s skill, assists poor children, orphans’ education, health, and neglected chaos widows the senior citizens to minimize poverty alleviation in the top Himalayas.

The RHC main goal is to assist mountain people through wholistic community development projects by assisting orphans, helpless children, neglected widows, scholarship, mission school, orphanage, Poverty alleviation project, urgent relief and ultimately see mountain people being reached with the love of God.
The mountain people follow Lamastic Tibetan Buddhism, worshipping the Buddha and Dalai Lama, and perform rites and rituals according to Buddhist teaching. “Buddhism is the second-largest religion in Nepal according to 2001 census.” And Nepal is the birthplace of Buddha. The Mountain people believe strongly in the power of the evil spirits and fear to displease devil, Buddha and Dalai Lama. They think that leaving Buddhism can bring a curse on them that is why they are so committed to Tibetan Buddhism.

What does RHC do?
Skills Development Trainings
We do skills development trainings such as tailoring, agriculture and other trainings to uplift top mountain people. We intentionally equip workers who will multiply and empower others to do the same in the high Himalayas of Nepal and beyond.
Seed Project Community uplift
The project provides capital funds for pig farms, potato businesses, butcher shops, cordycept businesses, handcrafts, rising goats, poultry farm and yak transport businesses etc. The goal is to help our workers to be self-supported in the market places and to strengthen high mountain communities economically.
Cleft lip and Palate projects
In the high Himalayas communities, the CLP patients are hided from the community and patients are also very shy to appear in the community due to CLP openly. This regions people think that it is a cursed from God due to sin. They had no opportunity to hear that this is not due to curse but it is the tissues in the baby’s face and mouth did not fuse properly due to genes problems with parents either drugs or viruses. We help Cleft lip and Palate (CLP) patients with their transportation, lodging, and food while they are in the hospital. We provide patients care center for them and health awareness lessons etc.
Pure and undefiled religion is to look after orphans and widows in their distress. We often encounter neglected widows in the high Himalayas. We provide food, clothing, love and care.
In the top mountain regions, there are so many un-schooling children due to poor and orphans. Their parents are living under the poverty, which caused their children to be un-schooling. Parents also do not care about their child education rather prefer to send them to Buddhist monasteries to be Buddhist monks and nuns. Most children are sent to Buddhist monasteries and some are after yaks and mountain goats. We do often the education awareness and health awareness program in the top mountain regions.
One of the greatest needs in the tom mountain community is to assist and elevate hundreds of helpless orphans and poor children who are deprived of their necessities.

Arun Top English School
The Arun Top English School is located in Bhotkhola -2 Linggam the border gateway to Tibet. We support 30 very poor students in their tuitions, uniform, school bags and jackets. The reason that we started this school is that most parents want to educate their children in good school in Kathmandu and other cities. Some parents who can afford, they keep their children in Kathmandu and district to send their children in private school where their children would be educate well. Other poor people also want to keep their children in Kathmandu and other places but due to financial limitation, they return back. Parents are sometime separated due to the children education and there have been relationship problems in some of couples. With seeing all these problems, we started this school in lingam where we have now 65 students. All of the children needs desperately scholarship as well.

RHC has been in heavily involved in helping the earthquake victims in helping them to build over 500 shelters, water supplies, food, blankets etc.
