Review for Nepal Youth Foundation, Sausalito, CA, USA
This small to medium nonprofit is affecting social change in a big way! Just look at their Indentured Daughters Program. Over 11,000 girls saved from slavery with their innovative program. Not only that, but they have virtually stopped the practice of families selling their daughters into slavery. And the rescued girls are then given an education or vocational training. Nepal Youth Foundation has helped the girls organize and now they have formed their own co-operative; performing educational plays to prevent the practice from resurfacing, keeping an eye out for trafficked girls now that the practice has gone mostly underground and giving out micro loans to help their members start small businesses. Another innovative program is the Nutritional Rehabilition Homes which restore severely malnourished children to good health while educating their mothers about nutrition and child care. When mother and child return to their village, the mother shares her new knowledge with her family and neighbors. These homes are started & supported by NYF for the first five years and then gradually government funding takes over. And these are just two of many successful programs supported by NYF, such as J & K House (for children that have no families or their families can not support them, The New Life HIV/Aids Center, and their many educational programs. We personally donated to build a classroom to help support all the Indentured Daughters that were now returning to school and a dormitory to help girls remain in school when they had to walk 3miles to and 3 miles from school each day. We visited both these projects and our expectations were far exceeded.
