Rating: 5 stars  

Soma and I have supported HCC since its inception, and finally made it to Nepal for our once-in-a-lifetime encounter with some beautiful young souls. Thanks to Bruce, Susan, Dinesh and all the others who make the daily sacrifices necessary to build young minds, bodies, and spirits!

I volunteered for HCC during the summer of 2014 and was blown away by how much the organization really makes a difference in the everyday lives of so many people. While in Nepal, the children and staff members would regularly tell me how thankful they were for the assistance, while also expressing optimism for the organization and their own futures. HCC goes beyond simply giving a home and basic education to these children. The organization and its staff members foster a warm-hearted and open atmosphere where the kids feel free to express themselves and pursue their studies and interests. At the same time, HCC does a great job in getting these children a high level of education and positioning them to be successful in the future.

What HCC does, taking the most disadvantaged kids and giving them a loving home with adult and peer support and access to quality education, is something that is truly impactful in every one of these kids lives, and ultimately positions them to be independent and successful in their futures. I am personally very grateful that HCC exists because of the enormous amount of good it does in Nepal and the world, and I would encourage prospective volunteers to think about signing up to help. The experience of volunteering for HCC has helped me grow as a person and become more open minded and knowledgable about some of the challenges that face so many people in the world. I had never been to Nepal or a country like it before, and the experience of volunteering there for HCC has positively impacted my world view.

I have been involved with HCC for 5 years, and on the board of advisers for two years.
HCC has committed time, energy and resources to over 50 orphaned and destitute children in Nepal.
HCC has a profound commitment to provide not only the basic education, food, shelter, and health care, but they have created a home for the children with a family-like environment, holiday celebrations, and emotional support. The children receive classes in communication, team-building and essential life skills. Educational field trips and tutoring services are available for them.
HCC's commitment to provide education makes a huge difference for these children and teaching these children to be leaders not only for their country but for the world.
I'm honored to be affiliated with an organization that has such a love for children.

We are so thankful and humbled to have met Bruce and Susan, and to be a part of such an amazing organization. My husband and I sponsor a beautiful young girl whose life has been so positively impacted by HCC. The kind of support and empowerment these children are given is extremely comprehensive- and at such a reasonable cost for a donor.

I wanted to be even more involved because the founders and volunteers are truly wonderful people and everything this charity does is very transparent. We look forward to supporting HCC for a long time and visiting the children in Nepal this Spring.

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.

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!

I have been involved with HCC for 10 years, and on the board of advisers for six years.
HCC has committed time, energy and resources to over 50 orphaned and destitute children in Nepal. Due to the recent earthquakes, that number will greatly increase, and HCC is stepping up to provide resources and education for these children who have lost homes and family.
What sets HCC apart is that they provide not only the basic education, food, shelter, and health care, but they have created a home for the children with a family-like environment, holiday celebrations, and emotional support. The children receive classes in communication, team-building and essential life skills. Educational field trips and tutoring services are available for them.
With a literacy rate of only 57.4% in Nepal, HCC's commitment to provide education makes a huge difference, not only in the lives of the children in their care, but for the future of Nepal as a whole. This commitment is extended to include college or technical training. HCC students are studying to become health assistants, lab technicians, nurses, pharmacists, IT engineers, hotel and business managers, and accountants.
I'm glad to be a part of this wonderful organization that contributes so much.

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.

I visited Himalayan Children's Charities in Nepal for one month this summer. I had a fantastic time in Nepal and the experience really helped open my eyes to the tangible good that this charity has been able to and continues to accomplish. I really enjoyed interacting with the children and was quite moved by many of the stories that were shared. The charity staff create a great environment for the kids to learn and develop and a strong camaraderie exists among the kids. All in all, it was a pleasure to volunteer with this charity and I could not have more respect for the efforts of everyone involved in creating and keeping this organization running.

We are paying for one child's school fees until she graduates, which is not much to do. We are grateful for the honor, and the opportunity this organization has given us to help bring education to those who are so hungry for it. HCC is the best!
