The Himalayan Youth Foundation (HYF), is an organization dedicated to supporting education based initiatives in the Himalayan region. The Himalayas have an extraordinary landscape. Though beautiful, daily life for its people is harsh, and typically without the benefits that a modern city offers, including basic health care and education. This affects the children in particular, who often live in extreme poverty with a low life expectancy and high rates of illiteracy.
By helping to provide basic health care, proper nutrition, and an education to the underprivileged children of the Himalayas, HYF hopes to bring additional stability and prosperity to the region. Donations are invested directly by an experienced board of professional men and women that are committed to wise use of monetary gifts and direct monitoring to insure that the programs are provided for as needed.
Presently, supported projects include the Kailash Hostel in Kathmandu, Nepal, operated by the Himalayan Children’s Foundation. The Kailash Hostel offers a chance at formal education, basic necessities, psychological welfare, and shelter through individual sponsorship. Additionally, the Choki Traditional Arts School in Bhutan offers free housing and education in Bhutanese arts, math, and language to impoverished children in the area. We’re happy to be reminded that a little kindness can make all the difference in the future of a child most anywhere in the world.
