Reviews for Himalayan Children's Charities Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I really do not have proper words to thank Himalayan Children's Charities Inc for the work it has been doing in Nepal. While I was volunteering for earthquake affected people in Nepal after April 2015, I encountered with a person who lost 10 members of his family. He had his 2 years' old daughter and 4 years' old son survived, everything else destroyed. He was so traumatized when I first met with him that he even could not utter any word. At that time, I was moved my his situation but being myself as a graduate student, I could not help him financially. I talked with different people if anybody could help these kids. Finally, Himalayan Children's Charities took a very generous step for educating these kids. Their father was very happy and thankful to the organization. I am pleased and relieved now.

In my experience with Himalayan Children's Charities, I have been extremely impressed. Their commitment to children in Nepal is praiseworthy and their continuing hard work deserves recognition. From their organizational best practices to the on-the-ground love and support I've observed them provide to their students, HCC is an outstanding nonprofit. I became involved with this organization after the April 2015 earthquakes in Nepal, and when I approached them about the possibility of supporting the education of children in the villages who had lost parents in the quakes, they were willing to help. Now, we are collaborating in order to provide resources and support to dozens of children in very remote areas of Nepal. With this earthquake relief initiative, I have been particularly moved - not only by the heartfelt commitment to this work by the organization's directors and supporters - but also by the excellent leadership skills exhibited by the Nepali students in their program in Kathmandu. Thank you to all who help to make this work possible!

Himalayan Children's Charities is such a wonderful organization. You feel the passion that Bruce and Susan have to help the children and not only do they have passion, they do it! Love seeing the great work that HCC is doing and helping prepare the children for a life that they wouldn't have without HCC. Definitely recommend HCC, just check out their website and Facebook….simply amazing.

I have been involved with HCC for a few months now. In the time that I have been helping, I have seen how much they have helped the children and truly made a difference in their lives. The children seem very happy and grateful for the opportunities that HCC has offered them. It has been a privilege to be involved with HCC and will continue to help as much as I can. Thank you!

A fantastic charity! My partner is a board member and has visited Nepal with her son to experience first-hand the powerful work the HCC does for the children. Bruce and Susan are true champions for their cause.

HCC under the stewardship of Susan & Bruce Keenan, has done a fantastic job helping those most in need. Bruce saw the need first hand and they have dedicated their Lives to making a difference- what I love most, is that almost 100% of the money raised goes directly to the kids... Thank you both- keep up the Great work!

HCC is a wonderful organization that is making a huge impact on the lives of the 55 children they serve and the future generations of Nepalis. I have had the privilege of visiting Nepal and meeting the children and was able to see first hand how HCC and all the donors have profoundly changed the future of our world.

I am incredibly touched by the long-term dedication of this organization. They make a real difference in the lives and futures of the children they educate, which then translates into a broader positive effect as well. Over many years, with a relatively small amount of resources, used strategically, HCC is truly elevating those individuals and those whose lives are and will be touched by them. I'm so glad to be part of this work through our contributions.

It is a pleasure and privilege to support HCC for the past 9 years through my sponsorship and being a member on the board of advisers. The work they do is immense. Just watching Man Maya grow into such a wonderful, loving and talented young woman gives me such hope for future generations. When one child's life is saved and transformed, the ripple effect cannot yet be measured, but it certainly can be imagined. I have had the pleasure of watching over 50 children's lives be transformed. Imagine the ripple that has caused!. How inspiring!

I have been involved with HCC for 8 years now and it has been a wonderful experience on all levels. The child we have been sponsoring has developed into a beautiful, confident, and capable young woman and we are so proud of her accomplishments and what she brings to her community. With this organization everybody wins and I am proud to be a part of it.

Originally I just wanted to help my best friend and her husband with their charity. I had no idea it would have such a huge impact on my life. Since then I have become a sponsor for 6 years and also a board adviser. Himalayan Children Charities is an organization that provides orphans and destitute children in Nepal with an education and a safe place to grow up in, thus changing the future of these children and the country. I started sponsoring a 12 year old girl. When she was 15 I had the opportunity of visiting her in Nepal along with all the other children HCC sponsors. It was a life changing experience. She is now 18 years old and is in college pursuing her education in business. We are deeply connected and stay in touch via email. I feel blessed to have her in my life. HCC is a wonderful charity. Please support HCC. You will make a huge difference in the life of destitute children in Nepal. They are the most loving children I have met and so grateful for the help they receive.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of advisors?

Our family is privileged to sponsor a child from Nepal through Himalayan Children's Charities. We donate with confidence that our resources are used wisely for our precious Jasmati. She is receiving a quality education, but she also receives guidance for all aspects of her life. I believe she will blossom into a responsible adult who will give back to the world. HCC does a great job keeping in touch with donors and educating us about the work being done on our behalf.
