Sponsoring a child allows you to witness first-hand the impact of your donation, allowing you to follow the growth and success of an abandoned or orphaned Nepali child. Student sponsors and charitable donations are the backbone of our organization and we are always looking to grow the Himalayan Children’s Charities family!
We have three levels of support, ranging from $300-$2700 per year (or $25-225 per month), and donations can be made annually or monthly. Students can be sponsored by individuals, families or groups, and you will receive updates about your student’s progress and well-being. Please contact us at [email protected] to request a list of students in need of support.
Sponsorship Levels at Himalayan Children’s Charities
Sponsor a Child in Rural Nepal
The RISE Program provides scholarships and support for orphans and impoverished children in rural areas that were heavily damaged or destroyed by the 2015 Nepal earthquakes. The program enables these at-risk children to stay in school and receive an education, greatly reducing their risk of being trafficked or forced into child labor.
$300 per year (or $25 per month) supports a student who lives with family and attends a local government school. This amount covers school fees, uniforms, books, stationary, lunch money, and special workshops and programming.
$1200 per year (or $100 per month) supports a student who has no family to care for them and is placed in a local boarding school. This amount covers academic fees, room, board, books, uniforms, exam fees and tutoring.
Sponsor a Child in Kathmandu
HCC’s Kathmandu Signature Program supports orphaned and abandoned children in Nepal’s capital. This holistic program provides education, mentorship and a loving family environment from cradle to career.
$2700 per year (or $225 per month) supports a student in this program and covers: school tuition; accommodation at Khushi Ghar, HCC’s family-structured home; all personal costs, such as clothing, toiletries, school supplies, and all medical care; life-skills training; and enrollment in the Mentorship Program which fosters self-awareness, encourages leadership and discovery of inner talents and strengths.
Sponsor the Higher Education of a Disadvantaged Nepali Student
The PEAK Program is HCC’s newest program and supports disadvantaged, marginalized and impoverished students for college, technical school or university degrees.
$2700 per year (or $225 per month) provides motivated students with educational scholarships, which cover tuition and living expenses and access to HCC’s innovative Mentorship Program.
