Welcome to Digital Vantage Point January edition newsletter. The main focus of our efforts over the last 24 months has been the Machermo Porter Shelter and Rescue Post in the Everest region of Nepal. Thanks to a joint effort with Community Action Nepal, the local Sherpa community and the support of sponsors we have been able to get this ready for January 2007. We continue to work on behalf of mountain porters involved in the trekking industry throughout the world. Please remember you can help us with your ideas regarding our monthly newsletter throughout the year via the telephone number 1-905-415-8455 x28.
