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 Donation Match:

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. As a champion of our work to educate and empower Nepali youth, we would love for you to consider starting a recurring donation during International Youth Week!

Bonus Prize Competition:

At the end of the campaign, bonus prizes of $500, $300, and $200 will be awarded to the top three fundraising organizations and the top three organizations with the most donors.

Thank you for making this life-changing work possible!

Best,

Jacqueline Frost

With your support, 97 blind, deaf and physically disabled children attended school and received medical services last year as part of NYF’s Disabled Scholarship program.

Without this help, many disabled children would never receive the education and skills needed to live full and productive lives.

Often treated as discards in Nepal's caste society, we send the children to special schools which are set up to care for them physically and academically. Our students thrive.

While there are some special schools that accommodate specific needs of disabled students, tuition is usually more than the annual income of a Nepali family. Consequently, only an estimated 30 percent of disabled children are educated, leaving most unable to read, write or ever work.

Founded in 2000, the program has been highly successful, and many graduates are now employed and are proudly providing for themselves and families. Some are paying their own way through graduate school. Furthermore, the program has had positive impacts that extend beyond the student's academic performance. The social workers have found that once they become involved in our program, they become much more motivated, independent and their social behavior improves remarkably.

These accomplishments would not be possible without the support of people like you.

Thank you and dhyanabad.

You can make an even bigger impact on the lives of Nepalese families still recovering from the massive earthquakes in 2015.

Beginning April 25 at 9 a.m. EDT - the second anniversary of the earthquake - Global Giving will match gifts by 50 percent on projects that are helping Nepal to recover and rebuild. The $50,000 match will continue until December 31 or the funds run out - whichever comes first.

Our project – Help a Child Remain with a Loving Family - #24772 – qualifies for this generous opportunity. Our program allows children orphaned or abandoned after the earthquakes to live with extended family. The majority of the children lost one or both parents in the disaster, to death or disability, and all of the children accepted into the program were identified as being among the most vulnerable of the 8,000 applicants. By covering the most basic living expenses of school supplies, food, and health care, NYF is protecting children from sex or labor trafficking, and ensuring they are able to continue their educations despite the incredible disruption in the country. 

Even a small gift can make a big difference in the life of a poor Nepali child. Please donate on April 25.

Thank you and dhanyabad!

Last year, your support gave 92 blind, deaf and physically disabled children the opportunity to go to school and receive critical medical services as part of NYF’s Disabled Scholarship Program.

Without this help, many disabled children would never receive the education and skills needed to live full and productive lives.

Often treated as discards in Nepal's caste society, we send the children to special schools which are set up to care for them physically and academically. Our students thrive. Last year, we welcomed 6 new students into our program, caring for a total of 92 students in preschool through high school.

While there are some special schools that accommodate specific needs of disabled students, tuition is usually more than the annual income of a Nepali family. Consequently, only an estimated 30 percent of disabled children are educated, leaving most unable to read, write or ever work.

Founded in 2000, the program has been highly successful. and many graduates are now employed and are proudly providing for themselves and families. Some are paying their own way through graduate school. Furthermore, the program has had positive impacts that extend beyond the student's academic performance. The social workers have found that once they become involved in our program, they become much more motivated, independent and their social behavior improves remarkably.

Your dollars go far in Nepal. Thank you for your generous contributions to our project to Provide Education to 20 Disabled Children. This program’s accomplishments would not be possible without the support of people like you.

Namaste!

Namaste!

It was another challenging year for Nepal and children and families we serve.

Just months after two major earthquakes devastated the country, political unrest and a prolonged blockade at the Indian border brought Nepal’s recovery efforts to a near standstill.

Petrol, cooking fuel, food, medicine and building materials were in short supply and prices more than doubled, causing even more suffering.

The crisis slowed us down, but it couldn’t stop NYF’s dedicated staff from doing everything they could to care for some of Nepal’s most impoverished children.

They rode bicycles when there was no petrol. When the cooking fuel ran out, they built outdoor fires to keep the community kitchens operating. They worked 16-hour days to help people who had lost everything.

We are so proud of what the NYF Nepal team accomplished in face of these hardships. We could not have done it without your friendship and support.

Thank you and dhanyabad!

With warmest wishes for the year ahead!
