Maya gaining peace through counseling
Even when the Nepal Youth Foundation is able to rescue a child from hunger and want, it is not always as easy to rescue that child from the nightmares that remain in the wake of harsh trauma, domestic violence and extreme poverty.
Ankur Counseling Center (ACC) was established as a place to give the children of NYF the psychological counseling needed to recover their mental health as they are being restored to physically healthy, happy lives in NYF's other programs.
In addition, ACC also offers outreach for other children suffering psychological pain, and, in this last half year, trained 45 former Kamlari girls as peer counselors.
And, now, next Wednesday, March 14 ONLY...
... because we appreciate every dollar you have given to support our program, NYF is thrilled to invite you to participate in GlobalGiving’s Bonus Day event.
Wednesday, March 14, 2012, GlobalGiving.org will match 30% for every dollar you donate! $50,000 in matching funds are available, but only on March 14. This 30% matching offer begins right after the stroke of midnight, March 13, and runs only until the $50,000 is claimed. Once the funds are used, no more matching funds will be applied.
Add even greater value to the gifts you give NYF. Mark your calendars for NEXT Wednesday, March 14, 2012.
And, GlobalGiving will make this 30% match for single contributions up to $1,000! That’s $1,300 value for a $1,000 donation.
As far as the Ankur Counseling Center goes, this means the addition of a full year of mental health services provided to an additional two clients, increasing the number of children and young adults served from five to seven for the same investment.
- The organization that raises the most funds on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.
- The organization that has the most unique donors on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.
Thank you again for your support of the Nepal Youth Foundation. Namaste!
