Change a disabled Nepali student's life today

When we found six-year-old Nirmala, she was blind and had no chance for an education. We enrolled her in a special school for blind children and then welcomed her into K House, our home for girls, where she was fed, clothed, loved and educated. A very bright girl, Nirmala thrived during her time with us. She earned a scholarship to attend college in the U.S. and is now in Nepal working for the United Nations. Nirmala's goal is to help other handicapped Nepali children.

Please help Nirmala -- and NYF -- achieve this goal by donating TODAY to our #YouthSpark  #GivingTuesday campaign and Microsoft will match your donation! Contribute between noon Eastern today and noon Eastern December 4 to double your giving power.

Our Disabled Scholarship fund has helped nearly 200 blind, deaf and physically disabled children who are 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, all but one student who took the rigorous School Leaving Certificate exam passed -- an impressive 91 percent pass rate in a country where only 40 percent of Nepali students pass the required college entrance exam.

Your dollars go far in Nepal. They can go even farther TODAY if you take advantage of Microsoft's generous matching grant.Thank you for your generosity. Namaste.
