Founded in 1962, the Trans-Himalayan Aid Society (TRAS) is a Vancouver-based non-profit international development organization and registered Canadian charity that seeks to improve the health and education of children and youth in northern India, Nepal and Tibet. TRAS holds no political or religious affiliations, and assists communities on the basis of humanitarian need. TRAS runs a child sponsorship program and funds a range of health and education-related projects. Since 1962, TRAS has developed a network of partner organizations in India, Nepal, and Tibet that implement health care and education projects in their communities. TRAS sends no staff or volunteers abroad, preferring to work with local partners in the Himalayas, using local expertise and materials, to address some of the social, economic, medical and environmental needs of this region.
