I have been donating to the Himalayan Children's Fund, general use account, for a number of years now and am always appreciative of their activities. As a Certified Public Accountant, with over 25 years working with not-for-profits, I can appreciate the effort and dedication it take to run an operation like this, as well as they do.

I visited the school, in Nepal, and have seen first hand the benefit to the children. The facilities are well maintained, the staff is professional and caring and the children are safe and offered a fine education.

My monthly donations will continue, as long as I am able, in order that HCF can continue to benefit the children from the region.
