For over 30 years, NYF has been hard at work supporting Nepal’s journey by educating, healing, sheltering, and freeing its children. Lasting, sustainable change comes slowly. The work is multifaceted, complex, and deep-rooted. Each transformation is an inspiration.
With holistic programs developed, led, and implemented by Nepalese citizens on the ground in the communities we serve, NYF focuses on providing children with the core gifts of Education, Health, Shelter, and Freedom.
These entwined values support the strong, healthy childhood development that forms the framework of independent and joyful adulthood. The kids we serve have vivid, beautiful, worthy dreams. We’re helping them make their world even better.
