“Giving the gift of education has had a profound impact on my life.”

Tim Clarke for Effect.org

On April 15th, 2015 Tim Clark was trekking to Everest Base Camp when a 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal. The destruction and suffering that followed was unforgettable. Inspired by the resilience of the Nepali people, he returned a few months later to rebuild homes and develop technology projects to aid recovery efforts. In 2016, he returned a third time to successfully complete his hike to Everest Base Camp and raise funds to rebuild a new school in Nepal.
