There is no welfare system in Nepal and in regional areas, subsistence rural families are simply too poor to buy school uniforms, text books, cover school fees and lunches, to provide their children with an education. This sponsorship goes to providing the children and their family with food and schooling support.
FHC has built a dedicated Hostel to provide a safe and comfortable place for children from desperate circumstances. Some are orphans but many are not, coming from a background of extreme poverty and/or family disfunction. When they come to our Hostel, they are fed, clothed, mentored, provided with medical care, and given access to the local school where they can study to Year 10. FHC covers all costs to keep them in a safe and supportive environment.
This level of sponsorship provides students in Kathmandu with secure accommodation, food (students cook for themselves), clothing, medical care, mentoring, education fees, uniforms, and textbooks for Year 11 and 12. These students have excelled though their schooling and are committed to furthering their professional aspirations.
You may cancel your sponsorship instantly at anytime. We understand that circumstances can change. Email our membership secretary with your instructions.
