Help out Sam from Nepal

I’m asking for your assistance to contribute to Shyam (Sam). Sam has been my guide through the mountains for the last two weeks and we have become good friends.

Sam is 27 years old with a wife and son. He grew up in a poor family in a low cast and moved to Pokhara at the age of 14. He would find cleaning work when he could. Some days he would eat some days he wouldn’t. At the age of 17 he started as a porter in the mountains carrying 30kgs up and down the mountains of Nepal. After 7 years he had acquired enough English from speaking to clients to become a guide which he has been doing for the last 3 years. With 10 years experience in the mountains he is great at what he does but at $25 a day is not a lot to feed the family and to start a business or buy a home.

His mum passed away when he was a teens and he and his brother support his dad.

Id love to give Sam a helping hand by using my network of successful business people, friends and investors to contribute to helping a genuine and hardworking guy.

This will allow Sam to take the steps needed to start a get educated, start a business, put food on the table and hopefully buy a home.
