The Global Volunteer Network Foundation has been supporting our projects since its inception in 2005, most significantly, the year on year running costs for our Brighter Future Children's Home (BFCH), a happy and loving home to 14 deprived, orphaned or destitute Nepali children. The help and support they give us (not just financial) is outstanding and their staff are always willing to do that little bit extra to make a fundraising campaign (ours or theirs on our behalf) a success. Not only do they fundraise directly to support our projects, but they also act as a 'donation station' for friends of VSN, thus reducing international transfer costs and enabling small donors to make viable donations. We are currently working together on their Everest Base Camp Fundraising Trek which is happening in September, of which the funds will go to cover future year's running costs of our BFCH home. Alongside this their Eat So They Can campaign is focusing on running costs for both BFCH and our second children's home Shining Stars Children's Home (26 children) and they have also nominated us as their Project of the Month for August, in order to help us raise money for the further education of our children. The relationship VSN has with the GVN Foundation is far more than 'client served', they are very definitely part of our family and they are the reason our BFCH children are able to grow up in a safe and loving environment, attend school, eat healthy, nutritious meals and most importantly, enjoy their childhood.
