Review for Nepal Youth Foundation, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked in the nonprofit sector for nearly three decades and am familiar with hundreds of nonprofits in the Bay Area and internationally. NYOF is my personal favorite. I just returned from Nepal where I had the joy of visiting J and K Houses--two homes for orphans run by Nepalese Youth Opportunity Foundation. I also visiting one of the Nutritional Rehabilitation Centers, a temporary home for women and their malnourished or starving children. I have been a NYOF donor for nearly ten years but seeing the work firsthand was absolutely catalyzing. Everything NYOF does is done spectacularly well. The programs are effective and cost efficient as well as culturally appropriate. The children in their care are a delight. The individuals who work in Nepal for the agency are dedicated, talented and professional. I came home from Nepal more committed than ever to the agency and look forward to sharing as much with them in the coming years as I possibly can.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Nepal and they exceeded any vision I had been able to form in my mind of their programs and impact.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the education I have received and the sense of accomplishment I feel each time I make a gift to the organization.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extraordinary--talented, experienced, dedicated and willing to do whatever it takes to assist the children in NYOF's care.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

eliminate the practice of selling indentured daughters throughout all of Nepal, endow J and K Houses, open a greater number of the wildly effective nutritional homes and serve more children.

Ways to make it better...

I could have stayed longer in Nepal and donated even more money to help grow NYOF's wonderful programs.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Donor & After nine years as a donor, I visited the NYOF programs in Nepal in April 2009.
