Mount Everest stands as the tallest mountain on our planet, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Known as Sagarmāthā by the local community, the revered “Mother Goddess of the World” has deep cultural and religious significance to the Sherpa communities that live in Nepal. As humans continue to expand our impact on earth, even this remote area is now affected by an international community of people. Last year, more than 26,000 lbs. of untreated human waste accumulated from climbers and their crews at Mount Everest Base Camp.
In order to preserve this mountain’s majestic beauty, action is required to implement a sanitation solution that ensures the safe disposal of this mounting environmental and human health hazard. Volunteers from the U.S., Nepal, and other countries are working together and we need your help.
Thank you for your support in this critical effort.

As a volunteer-run non-profit, Mount Everest Biogas Project has been working on this critical project since 2010. Significant progress has been made: the development and design of the project are now complete. Now we need to build it. Our organization is made up of only volunteers and our team is growing. Do you have knowledge of one of these areas and the willingness to volunteer some of your time to help us out? This team is made up entirely of volunteers, so if you have the time and the will to help, you can be one of us too. Whatever support people can provide is always welcome.
