Since the devastating earthquakes in 2015, HCC has been helping keep families together and children in school in the rural districts hardest hit. Through our outreach, poverty-stricken children are provided with school supplies and warm clothes in addition to tuition support. Several times a year HCC-Nepal staffers make trips to check on the progress of the students and their families in these remote, impoverished areas.
They meet with each student individually to insure they are keeping up with their studies.
Many of the students have some surviving family, but without support they wouldn’t be able to stay in school. Children in remote districts, like Dhading, are especially vulnerable to early marriage and human trafficking.
