Five years ago, with support from friends like you, NYF embarked on a major commitment - building FOUR life-saving Nutrition Rehabilitation Homes (NRHs) to save malnourished children.
This month, we’re celebrating the success of that project - transitioning all four NRHs to the Nepali government.
Located in Dailekh, Dang, Butwal, and Baglung, these centers will now be fully operated and funded by the government, with ongoing monitoring and training from NYF’s team.
We’re proud of this model - building and establishing each NRH and then transferring the ongoing operations to the government over a five year period – because it’s sustainable and maximizes the impact of your generosity.
That generosity has helped NYF build 17 NRHs over the past 20 years –transforming the lives of thousands of children since 1998. Now, 15 of those NRHs have been fully transitioned and we’re in the second year of operating the new Dadeldhura center.
Our first, flagship NRH in Kathmandu remains the heart of this program, as NYF staff provide life-saving treatment, train nutrition professionals, and coordinate the Nutrition Outreach program – taking these critical services “on the road” to remote, isolated communities.

Your generosity makes these incredible successes possible. Dhanyabad!
