Reviews for Himalayan Children's Charities Inc
HCC is supporting about 100 kids who were orphaned by the earthquakes in 2015. These kids are from Dhading district where I come from too. With the help from HCC, those kids have been able to continue their school and dream big. I have personally met over 40 of these kids and they highly appreciate the help they have been receiving from HCC and partners. I find that Susan, Bruce and Sadie are all about helping those who needs. I am very glad that they are doing great works in Nepal and making a difference in the lives of those kids who lost their loving parents.

I'm honored to write and recommend HCC as a outstanding non-profit organization.
I was a part of HCC on the graduation day in March 2016. This was the first time that HCC was able to produce graduates with university degrees.
I participated in the graduation program. I listened to the two individuals (girl and a boy) who gave the speeches. They talked about their journey with the HCC. They thanked Bruce and Susan and the HCC team who helped them to raise and be university graduate. When they spoke, they made audiences into their tears.
I saw that how much HCC has given them, not only the education and care, but also the confidence and hope.
I had a chance to work with other children during the program. They were all very smart and happy. I also talked with some sponsors who have been sponsoring these children for over 10 years. The sponsors were like parents to these children. And they seemed very proud.
Overall, I am very happy to be the part of HCC in some ways and to see these children growing. Kudos to HCC family who has worked tirelessly to put these children in school and supporting them.

I was surprised how HCC operates and are helping orphan children in Nepal. I went to the HCC's khusi ghar(Home of Happiness -literal meaning), where the orphan children lived. Well, they were all late teenagers, who were studying post high school , some were in college-level.
I'm amazed that HCC actually supports a child all the way through college and have a strategic exit plan. Most non-profits working in Nepal don't support children all the way up to the college.
When I visited the HCC, the staffs were nice and welcoming. I also saw the children's rooms they were comfortable and very organized with all the facilities they needed. Boys and girls had separate floors with common kitchen.
There are thousands of NGOs in Nepal but very few are exceptional and deserve time to write a review. i'm glad that HCC is operating in Nepal, educating hundreds of orphan children and developing one child at a time. I wish them a bright future and wish that they get all the support they need from the government, donors, general public and everyone else.
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.
