Thank you so much for all of your generous support over the years. You have helped NYF to empower so many young adults through our Vocational Education & Career Counseling program. While NYF will continue supporting these young adults, our fundraising efforts on GlobalGiving will now focus on providing immediate COVID-19 relief to families in Nepal.
As a result, we will be concluding this project on GlobalGiving. We are so grateful to each and every one of you who have helped to make this project a success.
We hope you’ll continue to support NYF’s ongoing efforts to empower Nepalese families and youth. Please check out the projects we’ve launched in response to the current global crisis:
24-year-old "Suresh" lives in the mountains in a remote village east of Kathmandu. His two sisters were married years ago, and his father passed away in 2018 – leaving Suresh and his mother with no income to support them.
Though Suresh did well in school and passed his major examinations, he was reluctant to continue his academic studies given the high unemployment rate for college-educated youth in Nepal. More importantly, however, he couldn’t leave his mother alone at home.
Suresh enrolled in one of NYF’s Vocational Training programs nearby and began taking electrical training classes. He studied hard for three months, and successfully completed his training in December of 2019.
Suresh now works under a private contractor installing electrical wires inside homes, and earns more than enough to support himself and his mother. Suresh hopes to advance his electrical skills in the future – but in the meantime, is so thankful for what he has already learned.
Thank you for helping young adults like Suresh lead independent and dignified lives!
Eighteen-year-old “Shiva” is from a particularly poor district in western Nepal. For as long as he could remember, Shiva’s large family of 10 struggled to make ends meet - and by the sixth grade, Shiva had dropped out of school.
Now enrolled in NYF’s Vocational Training program, Shiva is so pleased to be learning how to be a carpenter. “Carpentry enables me to do innovative work, like creating a new product out of wood, and this makes me very happy,” he says, proudly.
With so much infrastructure left to rebuild in Nepal after the 2015 Earthquake, skilled construction workers are in high-demand. Shiva is excited for a well-paying career in carpentry after he completes his training, and he looks forward to being able to help support his family and younger siblings.
But he couldn’t have gone this far without your generosity. We - and especially young adults like Shiva - are so thankful for your support.
