We are in the business of realizing dreams and helping others achieve theirs. On this site, you will find information about the nonprofit Around-n-Over, our charitable goals, and the Six Summits Project. Our mission is to educate and to inspire through human powered endeavors. We want to engage children and adults alike. We are showing that dreams can come true with due diligence and that challenges in life can be opportunities to reach for greater goals. (Why?) The goals of Around-n-Over are: To inspire and to inform young people by developing educational activities based on the realities of human powered exploration and adventure, including, but not limited to, geography, mathematics, natural science, physical fitness and social studies To inspire and to instill the values of selflessness, sacrifice and perseverance in young people so that they might develop into good citizens, and stewards of this earth To assist poor communities in their struggle towards self-sufficiency by providing basic educational aid and resources, know-how and facilities Around-n-Over is a nonprofit organization based in Seattle, Washington. Using the Six Summits Project as a launchpad, this nonprofit will produce news and educational content about the journey, and share its know-how for future human powered, self propelled challenges. It will be a privilege for us to assist other dreamers with their journeys worthy of Göran’s legacy. A specific goal of this organization will be to support the school that Göran Kropp founded in 1996, the Göran Kropp Bishwa Darshan Primary School in Taptin, Chyangba, Solukhumbu, Nepal, which serves 165 pupils and eight teachers. The incorporated entity Around-n-Over provides a structural catalyst to channel our energies and offers the financial discipline required to be worthy of our supporters.
