Energy Voluntourism

Many villages in Nepal are deprived from accessible sources of energy. HV organizes energy voluntourism programs to help these villages establish access to energy sources. Himalayan Power Trek-Patale in 2011 is one example for energy voluntourism in which students raised funds to help purchase the equipment needed to provide energy to a whole village. Students trekked 12 days to reach and install solar LED panels in Patale village, giving every household access to solar energy.
