Nepal Youth Foundation (NYF)

The Nepal Youth Foundation (NYF; formerly the Nepalese Youth Opportunity Foundation, NYOF) is devoted to bringing hope to the most destitute children in the beautiful but impoverished Himalayan country of Nepal. With a personal touch, we provide these children with what should be every child's birthright - education, housing, medical care, and loving support. Empowered to reach their potential, these children blossom, enriching the world we all share.

In rural Nepal, impoverished families have been selling their daughters to be bonded servants. The Nepal Youth Foundation (NYF) provides the family with a goat or piglet as substitution for the daughter's wages, brings the girl home and ensures her access to education. Now that NYF has freed more than12,000 girls and has nearly eradicated the bonding practice, it has shifted its focus to empowering girls to be leaders of the movement against bonding. project reportread updates from the field

Fifty percent of Nepali children under five-years-old are malnourished. Among the consequences of malnutrition are stunted growth, increased susceptibility to disease and permanent intellectual damage.

NYF's unique program restores health to a malnourished child while simultaneously educating the mother in proper childcare, hygiene, and nutrition. And all of this can be done with a donation of $260. project reportread updates from the field
