While education is a challenge for all impoverished Nepali students, young people in remote villages face even greater obstacles to learning.
These students trek long distances to school and come from families so destitute that the cost of school uniforms, supplies and even a modest school fee is far beyond their meager budgets.
Meet Sushant. The 10th grader lost his father to AIDS and lives with his impoverished mother and sister. With a scholarship from NYF, he rose to the top of his class and will go to college next year. He wants to become a medical doctor someday.
Please help Sushant and other bright, impoverished Nepali students get the education they need for a brighter future by donating TODAY to our #YouthSpark #GivingTuesday campaign. Microsoft will double your donation if you contribute between noon Eastern today and noon Eastern December 4. http://spr.ly/GTGH.
Our scholarships have changed the lives of thousands of Nepali students since we began our program in 1990. We pay for books, school supplies, fees and tuition. A donation of just $100 will pay for a year of schooling for a student in rural Nepal.
Your dollars go far in Nepal. They can go even farther TODAY if you take advantage of the Microsoft's matching grant. Thank you for your generosity. Namaste.
