Direct beneficiaries per year: In fiscal year 2013-14, we served approximately 8,000 children and youth.

Geographic areas served: Nepal

Programs: Education Support - We offer scholarships to underprivileged and disabled children from grade school to graduate school.

Empowering Freed Kamlaris - We provide former Kamlaris (girls who worked as house slaves) with education, psychological support services, and assistance in developing self-sufficiency.

Vocational Education and Career Counseling - We help young people establish careers that can support themselves and their families.

Malnutrition Prevention and Treatment - We restore the health of malnourished children while educating their mothers in nutrition and childcare.

New Life Center - We provide life-prolonging treatment to impoverished children with HIV/AIDS, while teaching their caretakers about hygiene and nutrition.

Ankur Counseling Center - This is the only psychological services clinic in Nepal specifically for children and adolescents.

Children's Homes - We provide nurturing home environments for orphans, children with disabilities, and those who were abandoned.

Nepal Youth Foundation (NYF) is a U.S. based nonprofit that works to provide Nepal's most impoverished children what should be every child's birthright: freedom, health, shelter and education.
Since 1990, 40,000 children and youth have been served by our programs, and 62,000 adults have benefitted from our awareness and education programs regarding health, nutrition and children's rights.

Special highlights include:

Ending "Kamlari" child slavery - Since launching our campaign to end the Kamlari system of indentured servitude in 2000, NYF has freed over 12,000 girls who had been forced to work as domestic slaves.

Vocational Education and Career Counseling - more than 80% of our graduates are now employed, a remarkable achievement considering that nearly half of all Nepalis are unemployed.

Nutritional Rehabilitation Homes (NRH) - Since 1998, we've established 16 NRHs throughout Nepal. To ensure sustainability, we have already transferred the management of eight of the NRHs to the government.
