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.

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