The Mountain Trust works with numerous leading organisations in the UK. Our remit is to build partnerships that will strengthen our organisational links and improve what we do and how we do it. We try to partner with like-minded organisations with which we can grow over the course of years.
University College, London
The Trust facilitates high altitude genetic research in Nepal into Hypoxia, with UCL, Oxford University, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute & others, led by Prof Hugh Montgomery. We have recruited able Interns to participate and advised on the research design. Details are available here. The aim is to engineer a genetic therapy for use worldwide in maternal and intensive care units.
University of Essex
The Trust has been working directly with Essex since 2012 on a joint internship programme. The careers service at Essex have been incredibly supportive and have provided thousands of pounds worth of bursaries to students participating in the Nepal internships programme. If you are a student at Essex please contact us for more information.
Humanitarian Centre, Cambridge
The Trust has been a member of the Humanitarian Centre from its inception and has contributed ideas to its development. The Humanitarian Centre has helped recruit Interns, lent advice, and provided valuable contacts. The Mountain Trust is proud to be part of the Humanitarian Centre as both a beneficiary and contributor. We welcome collaboration with other HC members.
Himalayas Nepal magazine
We contribute to this high-end publication on life, travel and work in South Asia, particularly Nepal, India, Bhutan, and Tibet. Our contributions are always on volunteering in Nepal and our project work. Our publications address certain projects and give accounts by Interns who have worked with the Trust in Nepal.
Bullers Wood School
The Staff and Students of Bullers Wood Sixth Form College, London have been raising funds for several years and have sent teams to Nepal facilitated by The Mountain Trust. The hard work of the Sixth Form College has been very valuable to the Trust and the people of Nepal. We hope that this relationship will continue to flourish and welcome collaborations with other schools too.
