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!

We are so thankful and humbled to have met Bruce and Susan, and to be a part of such an amazing organization. My husband and I sponsor a beautiful young girl whose life has been so positively impacted by HCC. The kind of support and empowerment these children are given is extremely comprehensive- and at such a reasonable cost for a donor.

I wanted to be even more involved because the founders and volunteers are truly wonderful people and everything this charity does is very transparent. We look forward to supporting HCC for a long time and visiting the children in Nepal this Spring.

I really do not have proper words to thank Himalayan Children's Charities Inc for the work it has been doing in Nepal. While I was volunteering for earthquake affected people in Nepal after April 2015, I encountered with a person who lost 10 members of his family. He had his 2 years' old daughter and 4 years' old son survived, everything else destroyed. He was so traumatized when I first met with him that he even could not utter any word. At that time, I was moved my his situation but being myself as a graduate student, I could not help him financially. I talked with different people if anybody could help these kids. Finally, Himalayan Children's Charities took a very generous step for educating these kids. Their father was very happy and thankful to the organization. I am pleased and relieved now.

In my experience with Himalayan Children's Charities, I have been extremely impressed. Their commitment to children in Nepal is praiseworthy and their continuing hard work deserves recognition. From their organizational best practices to the on-the-ground love and support I've observed them provide to their students, HCC is an outstanding nonprofit. I became involved with this organization after the April 2015 earthquakes in Nepal, and when I approached them about the possibility of supporting the education of children in the villages who had lost parents in the quakes, they were willing to help. Now, we are collaborating in order to provide resources and support to dozens of children in very remote areas of Nepal. With this earthquake relief initiative, I have been particularly moved - not only by the heartfelt commitment to this work by the organization's directors and supporters - but also by the excellent leadership skills exhibited by the Nepali students in their program in Kathmandu. Thank you to all who help to make this work possible!

HCC under the stewardship of Susan & Bruce Keenan, has done a fantastic job helping those most in need. Bruce saw the need first hand and they have dedicated their Lives to making a difference- what I love most, is that almost 100% of the money raised goes directly to the kids... Thank you both- keep up the Great work!

HCC is a wonderful organization that is making a huge impact on the lives of the 55 children they serve and the future generations of Nepalis. I have had the privilege of visiting Nepal and meeting the children and was able to see first hand how HCC and all the donors have profoundly changed the future of our world.

I am incredibly touched by the long-term dedication of this organization. They make a real difference in the lives and futures of the children they educate, which then translates into a broader positive effect as well. Over many years, with a relatively small amount of resources, used strategically, HCC is truly elevating those individuals and those whose lives are and will be touched by them. I'm so glad to be part of this work through our contributions.
