Review for Himalayan Childrens Fund, Beverly Hills, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a donor for 13 years and am so happy with the daily experiences of the children at SMD school ( I visited once, but mostly I learn through their newsletter) and with the outcomes for the children, so many have gone on to higher education and fulfilling work - giving them a chance to give back to their families and community and the world.

Review for Karuna-Shechen USA, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I enjoy donating to Karuna Shechen because I feel that they have a compassionate and intelligent approach to helping as many people as they can. They are run very efficiently and the programs change the lives of many people. Over many years their programs have developed and become stronger and stronger. Their projects are interesting and reach out into very underserved communities. I appreciate that they provide me with an opportunity to participate by donating to their projects.

Review for Himalayan Childrens Fund, Beverly Hills, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have written at length before, but I wanted to say that The Himalayan Children's fund continues to be an exceptional non profit. The reports of progress and events come often and are engaging. The children are educated in a loving environment, and they have a good future ahead of them due to the quality of the education! I continue to enjoy supporting a student
( my second one), so rewarding!

Review for Himalayan Childrens Fund, Beverly Hills, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was fortunate to visit this School in Kathmandu about 10 years ago and since then have been a committed sponsor. The children are joyful, playful and kind to each other., the feeling of family permeates the environment. They live in a compound in the the midst of the Tibetan part of the city. They don't get out very often, as it is expensive to take a them on a field trip, nor do they see home often, for many it it is a long bus ride and then what looks to me like a hazardous five to nine day walk in the Himalayas to the home village. The curriculum is wonderful, the children are comfortable with at least three languages, Tibetan, Nepali and English, their educational success is great and when they graduate there are opportunities for further education and learning. They are coming from villages in the Himalayas where there is only subsistence living, many are malnourished when they arrive, and have been out taking care of the animals and small crops since they were little. One of the goals of the school is to educate the children so they can help their people. One of the great successes I think is the training of teachers, who go back to the villages and teach, and the training of health assistants, who are basically barefoot doctors who take on a great deal of responsibility at a young age. I am so happy that I can be part of this from far away by supporting a student and helping with general needs by donating when I can.
