Mission: Himalayan Children's Charities was established in 2000 to help address the Nepali orphan crisis by providing quality education, nurturing care and innovative mentorship to orphaned and abandoned children and youth. Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty for these children and help transform their lives from a position of marginalized victim to a life of empowerment, self-sufficiency and community leadership. HCC was founded on a principle of community service, and we encourage our students to use their experiences and position to help others. Our philosophy creates a cycle of giving, ensuring that HCC’s future leaders are dedicated to helping vulnerable children in positions that they were once in.
