A great way to help the mountains
While looking for volunteer opportunities on VolunteerMatch's website, I found a newly forming organization known as The Mountain Fund. The Mountain Fund is a great charity for people who love the mountains and love the great outdoors because it is devoted to helping people of mountain cultures in every corner of the world.
Its mission is to organize grassroots nonprofits and NGO's from a diversity of disciplines and support and coordinate these organizations' efforts to eliminate poverty, its causes and symptoms, in mountainous communities.
Everyday The Mountain Fund works to bring health care, human rights, responsible tourism and environmental progress to those who need it most.
