TOP 5 REASONS TO GIVE TO HCC
1. MENTORSHIP OF AT-RISK CHILDREN CREATES POSITIVE FUTURES.
Destitute children have little chance of survival in their society. Doesn’t every child deserve a chance?
2. EDUCATION BREAKS THE POVERTY CYCLE.
Through quality education and leadership training, HCC students are becoming the young, vibrant leaders that Nepal needs to break the cycle of poverty.
3. EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING IS VITAL FOR SUCCESS.
HCC’s group home, “Khushi Ghar” (Happy Home) creates a family environment. Nurturing house parents guide them in life skills, and the Mentorship Program supports their self-awareness, self-esteem and self-expression.
4. ORPHANED CHILDREN ARE VULNERABLE TO TRAFFICKING, CHILD LABOR AND EARLY MARRIAGE.
HCC scholarships for orphans of the 2015 earthquakes allow for them to stay in local communities and attend school. Educating youth is a viable, long term strategy for sustainable, local re-building and progress.
5. HCC HAS A PROVEN TRACK RECORD OF ACCOUNTABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY.
For 16 years, HCC has been solving problems and adding value with transparent processes, accessible personnel, and committed partners. Multiple review-based nonprofit awards assures you that contributions go where they are needed most – helping the underprivileged children of Nepal.
