Our aim is building a school in Sailung
Welcome to the website of the Ton Memorial School Sailung Foundation. The foundation was set up to support education in the area around Sailung Peak in Nepal.
The Ton Memorial School Sailung foundation is named after Ton van den Brink. His special bond with Nepal commenced after close friends adopted two children who came from Nepal to the Netherlands. After his first visit to Nepal in 2014 his love for the country, the mountains and the people grew. In March 2018 Ton left for Nepal for the second time on a trekking tour through the mountains.
Ton and his fellow traveller, one of the adoptive parents, had planned to visit a school in Sailung during their trip. Together with the adoptive parents, family and friends from the Netherlands Ton wanted to commit himself to realizing further support and growth of this school. Unfortunately, Ton never finished his second journey in Nepal. On March 20, 2018 he passed away in his beloved Nepali mountains.
In his name and from his big heart we keep pursuing his goals
