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.
