#5 Mark LaMont – A longterm approach to affecting real change

Ten Friends: A non-profit with a long-term approach and vision

Mark LaMont runs many of the day to day activities at tenfriends.org and has worked in Nepal for over ten years.

Ten Friends is a non-profit organization formed by two teachers and a bunch of good friends. They improve lives with simple, hands–on projects that make a big difference to people in need in Nepal – one of the poorest countries in the world.

Their projects focus on assistance that the Nepali people need – not what others think they need. Before beginning a project they always ask, “Is this something you need and can use?”
