    Frances Klatzel

    Frances Klatzel is at home in the Canadian Rockies and the Himalaya. She initially worked for the Canadian Parks Service, but in 1980 first came to Nepal to trek and see the mountains. Soon, the people and cultures of this diverse land became her reason for staying. Since then, she has spent decades working in Nepal, much of that time in the valleys around Everest. From 1983-89, she helped create a museum and Sherpa Cultural Centre at Tengboche Monastery near Mount Everest. She worked with the Abbot of Tengboche to document the culture and edited the Abbot’s Stories and Customs of the Sherpas. Since then, she has done documentation work for a variety of development organizations and fund raising for various worthy causes. During these experiences, she started wondering how to help those left out from conventional assistance. In 2005, she co-founded a non-profit organization, CORE International, to pursue this quest.
