Take on Nepal was founded by Som Tamang and his wife Susan in 2013. Som is from Batase Village in the Lower Himalayas, one of the destinations for many of our Village Volunteer Programs.
A few weeks ago Som graduated from James Cook University in Cairns. Not quite a rags-to-riches story, more a rags-to-Cairns story — you can read about Som’s journey from there to here in the Cairns Post. With his studies now concluded, Som is devoting 100% of his time to Take on Nepal, and ensuring that each volunteer has the most fulfilling experience possible. Som spends much of his time with volunteers in his village of Batase and also in the Everest region leading groups to Everest Base Camp.
