Be part of a violence free, safe zone to flourish and prepare children for life!
In 2014 I discovered a post written by Shamser Thapa in one of the travel communities on couchsurfing.org. By getting in contact with Shamser Thapa, he inspired me to want to know more about Heaven Hill Academy and nepalese culture. So to share my support, I integrated Heaven Hill as my number one cause to contribute as much as possible, by making people aware, selling merchandise, donating money and promoting a world changing experience by volunteering at Heaven Hill.
Heaven Hill has currently 200 students from nursery to grade 6.
Class separation is deeply rooted in nepalese culture. Violence is also a long, long tradition within families and establishments like schools. Shamser Thapa is the first to have broken the cultural strains to change people’s mindset about some of the traditions. He has a strict no-hitting policy. He also educates for free as well as gives the children all the necessary tools to learn and have fun. What Shamser Thapa is doing is revolutionary in Nepal. With that he faces many challenges and gets no support from the government. In fact, several times the government has denied his request to obtain a permit to build and open his schools. This continues to be a hurdle in going forward building more schools, expanding the activities and his curriculum of volunteer teachers.

Watch how the children flourish through Shamser Thapa’s humane work!
