Himalaya Currents Inc. has been established to support sustainable energy and water projects in remote Himalayan villages. We currently have several projects on going which involve water/irrigation utilizing our "Ascension pump" technology and power generation projects using hydro kinetic energy from streams , wind and solar sources. We cooperate with partners like the World Wildlife Fund, Freunde of Nepal, Schulverein Lo-Manthang, Dolpo Tulku Charitable Foundation, Tapriza Foundation and One Heart World-Wide to bring green technology solutions to this fragile environment.

Despite fuel issues, protests in the south our work is completed.

12We complete the Karang, and Namdo (see video next to donate button below) School power installations! Also the Chunawar Health Clinic powered up too! Ringmo turbine has been damaged by debris this spring, we will repair in the fall.
We leave on the 7th of September to make further repairs on the Ringmo turbine which was damaged by floating debris. Also we will bring solar power units to Shey Gumba, and the Komas school. Lastly we will join George Schaller and Alex Mathiessen as they retrace their epic Snow Leopard journey some 40 years later. More pictures to come in October on our return. Also we will check on the progress of the new prayer wheel we supported at the Ringmo gumba last Spring. Lastly we will pay respects to Thinley's family in Saldang and hopefully install the water pump he was carrying when he fell of the cliff.
