We are emailing to let you know about our Youth Week Campaign on GlobalGiving. International Youth Day is Saturday, August 12th, and GlobalGiving is celebrating our work for an entire week from August 7th-12th, providing matching funds and bonus prizes!
During this week, Nepal Youth Foundation will be focused on building support for our projects in Nepal that educate, shelter, nourish and empower youth to be all they can be.
Will you help?

One-time contributions made at the beginning of the week will be matched dollar for dollar! The campaign starts at 9:00am EDT and Nepal Youth Foundation will be competing for the $13,000 available in one-time matching funds. Contributions up to $250 will be matched at 100% while funds remain.
Recurring Donation Match:
All recurring donations started this week will be matched at 100%! Recurring donations of all sizes provide meaningful, dependable support to power our work.

Thousands of Nepali children have little or no access to medical care so NYF’s innovative Malnution Program and Treatment program brings the healthcare to them.
This year, a team of doctors, nurses and nutritionists held 13 Nutrition Camps in rural villages and schools to screen children for malnutrition and other health problems. A total of 2,291 children were screened. Of those, a third was found to be malnourished.
The children that were severely malnourished were referred to one of NYF’s 16 nutrition clinics, where they received healthy food and were treated for other ailments. Their caretakers, usually their mothers, received education on good nutritional practices.
More than 40 percent of children in Nepal - one of the world’s poorest countries - suffer from malnutrition. Sixteen NYF-founded clinics throughout the country nurse children back to health and teach their caregivers how to prepare nutritious meals from locally available food.
NYF”s staff from Kathmandu also train medical and nursing students, and childcare workers in best practices of nutrition and diet management. More than 1,000 people received training in the past nine months.
Thank you for supporting this life-saving work!
