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.

The 130% Gift -- Restore Five Children to Health

Anika after 4 weeks at the NRH
Anika after 4 weeks at the NRH

Within the last half year, 442 malnourished children were admitted to NYF Nutritional Rehabilitation Homes.  While the children's health was being restored through proper nutrition on a diet of locally available foods, 377 caregivers were trained in proper food preparation and child care.

In addition, 745 children who had been treated previously received follow-up visits from our field workers who ensure that the children continue to receive appropriate care. 

And, our Bi-Annual report indicates that all of the NRHs are meeting their target admission, discharge and follow ups schedules.  Plus, due to improved practices and streamlined methods, to restore a child to WHO health standards costs our donors $80 less per child now than last year.

And, now, next Wednesday, March 14 ONLY...

... because we appreciate every dollar you have given to support our program, NYF is thrilled to invite you to participate in GlobalGiving’s Bonus Day event.

Wednesday, March 14, 2012, GlobalGiving.org will match 30% for every dollar you donate!  $50,000 in matching funds are available, but only on March 14.  This 30% matching offer begins right after the stroke of midnight, March 13, and runs only until the $50,000 is claimed. Once the funds are used, no more matching funds will be applied.

Add even greater value to the gifts you give NYF.  Mark your calendars for NEXT Wednesday, March 14, 2012.

And, GlobalGiving will make this 30% match for single contributions up to $1,000!  That’s $1,300 value for a $1,000 donation.

As far as NYF's Nutritional Rehabilitation Homes go, this means that the same $1,000 donation which can normally support the return to health by fewer than four severely malnourished children can, on Wednesday, March 14, 2012 ONLY provide for the full program of revitalized health for five youngsters, including parental education to ensure the entire family's well-being for the same investment.

 PLUS –

  • The organization that raises the most funds on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.
  • The organization that has the most unique donors on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.

Thank you again for your support of the Nepal Youth Foundation.  Namaste!

NYF Scholarship Students Consistently Outperform!

Nepal Youth Foundation's January 2012 Bi-Annual Scholarship Report from Kathmandu includes this fabulous news:

NYF's Scholarship students consistently outperformed the national Pass Rate by leaps and bounds.  For the "School Leaving Certificate" (the rough equivalent of our 10th Grade, and a notoriously difficult exam), the national pass rate average was 65%.  Yet of NYF Scholarship Students, the average pass rate was 80%.

And, the difference increases from there:

For the 11th Grade test, the national rate is 39%, NYF Scholarship Students, 87%;

12th Grade national rate, 46%, NYF Scholarship Students, 80%;

Bachelor's 1st Year national rate, 23%, with NYF Scholarship Students passing at 67%.

And, remember, these Scholarship Students are not from the privileged classes and castes.  The Nepal Youth Foundation and its donors support the welfare and education of the least fortunate children of Nepal's society, many of whom were destitute and without any family to support them.  Of our Scholarship recipients, 49% are from the Janajati, an ethnic minority, and 18% are of the Dalit community, one of the historically "untouchable" sects.  As with every one of our Scholarship recipients, the remaining 33% of our high-acheiving Students (children of other Nepali ethnicity) would not have the opportunity of an education without the help of NYF.

Help these children gain the education that will make them leaders in Nepal and, perhaps, in the World. For as little as $100 a year, NYF provides books, paper and pencils, school uniforms, and pays the school fee. Through these modest investments, NYF's donors are giving more than hope and education.  They are providing the opportunity to change an entire culture, one deserving student at a time.

The 130% Gift for an Educated Life

Even for the Nepalese children who are healthy and who can run and play, getting a formal education is a challenge.  However, for disabled children in a country where sidewalks are rare and many remote areas don't even have paved roads, getting to school becomes an impossibility.

NYF's Disabled Student Scholarship Program has been helping these students gain access to the education that they crave.  And, in many situations, the disabled child, once educated, becomes the source of the highest income in the household, thus raising everyone in the family to a more sustainable economic level.

We appreciate the support you have given us and we are grateful for your contributions to the opportunity to learn for these disabled, yet bright and eager children and young adults.

And, now, next Wednesday, March 14 ONLY...

... because we appreciate every dollar you have given to support our program, NYF is thrilled to invite you to participate in GlobalGiving’s Bonus Day event.

Wednesday, March 14, 2012, GlobalGiving.org will match 30% for every dollar you donate!  $50,000 in matching funds are available, but only on March 14.  This 30% matching offer begins right after the stroke of midnight, March 13, and runs only until the $50,000 is claimed. Once the funds are used, no more matching funds will be applied.

Add even greater value to the gifts you give NYF.  Mark your calendars for NEXT Wednesday, March 14, 2012.

And, GlobalGiving will make this 30% match for single contributions up to $1,000!  That’s $1,300 value for a $1,000 donation.

As far as the Disabled Student Scholarship Program goes, this means that we could provide FOUR students with an entire year of education at a special school for the disabled, PLUS provide transportation to and from school to all of them. This is almost twice the value of services that the original donation can provide!

PLUS –

  • The organization that raises the most funds on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.
  • The organization that has the most unique donors on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.

Thank you again for your support of the Nepal Youth Foundation.  Namaste!
