Challenge

With a dearth of tourists and no more burgeoning throngs of trekkers, porters & many others whose livelihoods depend on the tourism sector have been out of work for over a year. Above and beyond the existing challenges for at risk children whose education & holistic wellbeing we have been supporting, the Covid-19 and lockdown situation has created a new classification of at-risk children, about 40% in rural areas, who had been attending school but have dropped out due to this loss of income.

Solution

It's an urgent matter, and we have developed this new program to help before the loss of education creates a crippling situation of further loss. We have seen evidence in the past that more serious future problems for their family and community will most likely manifest unless their education is restored. Our urgent hope is to provide 350 children with an education sponsorship program for just one year. $1.00 USD a day for one year & yearly $ 350 cover a child's full education cost in school.

Long-Term Impact

Support for these children during this global emergency will prevent them from becoming a permanent school dropout and save them from at risk situations like child labor and trafficking as well as girls being forced into becoming child brides. Together, you and your sponsored child will start a special relationship that changes both your lives. Because of you, your sponsored child will have what every child deserves - a future.
