The Nepal Youth Foundation’s scholarship programs are benefitting hundreds of students throughout Nepal, including rural and remote areas where education is often overlooked by families. If parents in these areas send their children to school at all, it is often only for a few years so they can read, write, and do basic math.


In the last year, 24 students supported by NYF graduated from college, many the first members of their families to do so. 105 new students were enrolled in NYF’s scholarship programs. Many of the students supported by NYF are blind, deaf, or physically disabled.


Sabina’s story


Sabina passed her final school exams this year with very good grades and has enrolled in a technical education program to become a Lab Assistant. She decided to pursue technical career over the academic so that she would get immediate employment so she can support her mother and her little brothers and sisters.
