In World Youth Alliance, we learn about the importance of investing in the human person and our responsibility to nurture and sustain the beauty of our world. Now, as emerging young leaders of Asia Pacific, we invite you to continue your pledge to take care of our only home.
On May 16th, 2007, Janet Belarmino Forney became one of the 3 women (with Noelle Wenceslao and Carina Dayondon) to be the First Women in the world to traverse Mt. Everest- climbing from Chinese ABC camp to the summit of Everest and back down to Nepal—a record still unbroken. She is the youngest mother to summit Everest, standing on top of the world 5 months after giving birth. She is also one of the first Filipinas to summit Mt. Everest and one of the first 3 Filipinas to become the first Southeast Asian women to summit Mt. Everest.
Today, she continues her adventures, shares her stories, and promotes her advocacy for responsible traveling and exploring back in her homeland—the Philippines.
Explore and Learn with the Philippines Young Explorers Program
in the majestic islands of Coron, Palawan in the Philippines.
Janet Belarmino’s Philippines Young Explorers Program allows you to travel and explore responsibly. Vacation with a purpose and see nature as your classroom. The Young Explorers Program connects schools, institutions, and families around the world with educators, scientists, artists, and explorers on expeditions to help teach the targeted curriculum in a fun and meaningful way.
Among the program’s aims is to create environmental awareness among the youth and for them to experience and highlight the beauty of the planet.
Educational specialists and local guides will join young explorers out in the wild and share with them knowledge about the flora and fauna. This helps them understand the fragile and important interaction between man and nature.
During the expedition, you will visit places like Black Island, Coron Island, Lusong Gun Boat and many pristine islands and their beautiful coral reefs. From start to finish, crew/team members will learn to provision, develop the itinerary, plan the route and safely lead expeditions while developing skills to collect and communicate important information. Skills to be taught include swimming and snorkeling, map work and navigation, wilderness first aid and rescue, rock climbing and abseiling, and sailing.
The course program will be concluded with a day adventure course race involving multi-discipline activities using; navigation, running, climbing, abseiling, pulling tires, river crossing, banca padding and a very special team challenge.

On May 16th, 2007, Janet became one of the 3 women (with Noelle Wenceslao and Carina Dayondon) to be the First Women in the world to traverse Mt. Everest- climbing from Chinese ABC camp to the summit of Everest and back down to Nepal- a record still unbroken. She is the youngest mother to summit Everest, standing on top of the world 5 months after giving birth. She is also one of the first Filipinas to summit Mt. Everest and one of the first 3 Filipinas to become the first Southeast Asian women to summit Mt. Everest.
After climbing Mt. Everest, Janet took on the epic and historical sailing Voyage of the Balangay in 2010, where she and her teammates made a replica of the ancient boat Balangay carbon dated 320A.D and sailed it around South East Asia.
In 2012, Janet sailed with her husband, Todd, and son, Himalaya, on their 32 ft Tahiti Ketch from Langkawi Malaysia, down the Malacca, around Singapore, across the North coast of Borneo and up the West Coast of Palawan. The same year, Janet started BELARMINO VENTURES which provide expeditions in Northern Palawan and high altitude mountaineering expeditions worldwide. She is also a motivational speaker from the world of adventure, exploration, and endurance, Janet has pushed herself to the edge. August 2017. The unexpected tragedy and untimely death of Janet’s daughter recently led her and her family on the hardest expedition they have ever experienced. An expedition she never signed up for. A 30-day trek to the valley of memories where she and her husband built a memorial for their daughter, Amihan, at 5000mtrs asl – turning tragedy into transformation, loss into legacy. She is someone who has taken on some of the hardest and most treacherous journeys on the planet. In short, she is precisely the kind of person to inspire others to achieve great things.
