Programs

The Nepal Youth Foundation (NYF) is a U.S. based nonprofit that brings hope to impoverished Nepali children by providing what should be every child's birthright - Freedom, Health, Shelter, and Education. Because dollars go far in Nepal, we literally change lives for pennies a day. Freedom Rescuing Girls from Indentured Servitude In 2000, NYF launched the Indentured Daughters Program and began a campaign to end the practice of Kamlari, a system of indentured servitude in which girls from desperately poor families are sold into domestic slavery. Since then we've rescued over 12,000 girls and returned them to their home communities. But rescuing the girls from Kamlari isn't enough. Every one of them has suffered traumatic loss and abuse during their childhood and they've been deprived of an education. They'll need support well into their young adulthood in order to thrive and successfully make their place in the world. Our Empowering Freed Kamlaris program (EFK) helps former Kamlari girls become healthy, happy and independent young women, and stimulates the cultural and economic development necessary to ensure that no child will ever become a victim of Kamlari again. Health Saving Children from Severe Malnutrition NYF's innovative Nutritional Rehabilitation Homes treat severely malnourished children and educate their mothers about nutrition and child care, making the program's impact sustainable. Psychological Counseling for Needy Children The Ankur Counseling Center is breaking new ground by providing therapy for disadvantaged children in Nepal. The New Life Center for Children with HIV/AIDS The New Life Center provides lifesaving treatment to children infected with HIV/AIDS while teaching their parents how HIV-positive people can lead full, meaningful lives. Nepal's Only Training Course for Dieticians NYF has created a completely novel training course that is tailored for Nepali people and is improving nutrition throughout the country. The curriculum includes HIV/AIDS, diabetes, and severe malnutrition, which are common in Nepal. Shelter Loving Homes for Destitute Children J and K House are loving, supportive environments for children who are orphans, disabled, or abandoned, which provide them with unimagined opportunities. Student Housing Some children must walk for eight hours to and from school every day. NYF's student housing will reduce the drop-out rate and give students enough time to study. Education Vocational Education and Career Counseling Unemployment in Nepal is around 50%. NYF's pioneering program enables children to identify their strengths, find careers, and become self-sufficient. Scholarships for Impoverished Youth Education is the key to breaking free from poverty. NYF educates hundreds of children in day school, boarding school, and college, including many disabled students. Community Programs NYF uplifts entire communities by training teachers, building classrooms, and improving schools, to improve the quality of education the children receive.
