How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

NYF's programs bring real opportunity to the neediest children of Nepal.These children are street kids, orphaned or abandoned, begging at temples and sleeping alone in doorways or under bridges, rain or shine. Others have lived in jail with an incarcerated parent because there was no place else for them to go. Some – girls as young as six – have been sold by their families to work as bonded laborers. Other children come to us so malnourished that they cannot talk or walk.
 

One by one, thousands of children like this have benefited from NYOF's touch. We have the privilege and joy of giving them what they need to pull themselves out of destitution, and they do so with a courage and verve that inspires us all.
