Community Action Nepal (CAN) is a UK based registered charity whose aim is to help the mountain people of Nepal. They have been, and continue to be, a strong and dedicated implementing partner for the Himalayan Stove Project.
CAN was founded by Doug Scott CBE, one of Great Britain’s most accomplished mountaineers, with an illustrious resume of first ascents.
During Scott’s climbing career, his understanding of the culture and the people in the regions where he climbed grew as he formed strong bonds and relationships.
CAN helps to bring long term benefits to the resourceful and proud Nepalese mountain people.
CAN has established more than 50 community projects focusing on health, water and sanitation, schools, education, porter welfare and cultural development.
Doug’s Illustrious Climbing History
In 1975 Doug made the first British ascent of Everest, with Dougal Haston, on an expedition led by Chris Bonington. Doug has made 45 expeditions to the high mountains of Asia. He has reached the summit of 40 peaks, of which half were climbed by either new routes or for the first time in Alpine Style. Apart from his Everest ascent, he has made all his climbs in lightweight or Alpine Style, without the use of supplemental oxygen.
He has reached the highest peaks on all seven continents – “The Seven Summits.” He is a past President of the Alpine Club. He was made a CBE in 1994. In 1999 he received the Royal Geographical Society Patron’s Gold Medal, and in 2011 received the Piolet d’Or (Golden Ice Axe), one of mountaineering’s highest honours, a special award for his Lifetime Achievement to mountaineering – his personal style and climbs were described as “visionary”
