Founder + Director
Daniel first visited Nepal during his time as a Hydro Electric Engineer on a short-term assignment from Switzerland. It was during this time in Nepal where he and his wife Karina developed an incredible connection and heart for this country. Read about (one) of his life changing encounters here.
While experiencing the immense beauty of Nepal, they also encountered deep hardship and need of the people around them. Instead of returning to Swizterland 3 months later, Daniel and his family launched Himalayan Life and have remained committed for the past 20+ years. Along with their fellow Nepalese staff and friends, Daniel and Karina have developed the heartbeat of Himalayan Life: seeking to bring children from places of not life, to LIFE.
