I first became involved with HCF as a volunteer while living in Kathmandu. My college age son, who was in Kathmandu for an internship, and I worked at the school opening the library after school hours for free reading and art activities. We loved volunteering there, such a friendly happy place with the children so interested in talking to us. When my son graduated from College the next year he wanted his monetary gifts to go to the school. His aunts and uncle agreed to continue sponsoring the little boy yearly. Two years later my family gave me a gift of sponsorship for a little girl for Christmas. We also have been lucky enough to return to Nepal several times, have visited the school and spent very special time with these two children and several others. This is a very special school, providing both academic education, values of compassionate Buddhism and valuable life skills.

I have sponsored a girl since she was eleven years old...she is now in her thirties and has become a teacher for young girls like herself. She is incredibly sweet and signs her letters to me: "your darling daughter." HCF has an all volunteer staff and so donations go directly to the students and monks and nuns. It is through the inspiration of Tibetan teachers that so many westerners have joined together to provide education and basic needs for the children of the Himalayas.

I have visited the school and other projects. Their growth is amazing as well as the generosity of the children. Even when they are very full, they want to make room for more kids.

Let more people know of its work.
