Sponsor a Student
Our sponsorship program allows supporters in the NYF community to develop and maintain personal relationships with our students in Nepal. The program offers a wide range of educational scholarships, including schools for students with disabilities, colleges, medical schools, and training in vocational trades. We also provide students with a residential housing program.
Once matched with a student in one of our programs, sponsors will receive updates and information about their student’s academic progress. Some updates will include letters from the student, and sponsors are always encouraged to write back. All communication goes through NYF staff to ensure the safety of our students.
Our Sponsorship Programs
Olgapuri Children's Village
Olgapuri Children’s Village is a beautiful, permanent home for up to 80 children ages 1-18 whose parents are unable to care for them. Dedicated to offering these children the best possible opportunities, NYF sends all Olgapuri students to top schools in Nepal.
Caring for one child at Olgapuri costs $4,000 a year. For this amount, you can help provide a student at Olgapuri with a home, an education, and all the love a family can provide.
Scholarships for Students with Disabilities
Scholarships for Students with Disabilities are available for students from K-12, college, and beyond. Your sponsorship helps cover a student’s tuition, housing, necessary program materials, transportation, and more. These special scholarships are tailored to each individual student’s situation, taking into consideration their particular needs, ambitions, family situation, and more. Learn more about this program.
The cost of supporting a young student with a disability in Nepal is $800 per year.
Our Kinship Care program keeps families together by providing small stipends to loving, stable family members—grandparents, aunts and uncles, adult siblings, and more—to ensure these children are safe, well-fed, receiving necessary medical care, and most of all, attending school.
The cost of keeping a child safe with loving family members is $750 per year. For this amount, you can sponsor a child in Kinship Care, keeping them close to their families, friends, and familiar environments.
College Scholarships are available to students in college, graduate school, medical school, and other higher-education programs. Special priority is given to those experiencing systemic oppression, financial hardship, and other challenges.
An average college student’s tuition, housing, and cost of living in Nepal is around $850 per year. For this amount, you can sponsor a student in NYF’s College Scholarship Program.
