Sponsor a child in Nepal
Children in Nepal
Most of the children of Nepal are vulnerable to problems (orphans and poor). Sponsoring a child in Nepal will provide aid that will be used for the sponsored child’s accomodations, nutrients or education/schoool fees.
This activity enables individuals to provide aid to a child in Nepal who may be facing any of the difficulties listed below:
- Poor infrastructure & systems
- Caste system
- Exploitative child labor
- Street children
- Conflict victims
- Disease & HIV/AIDS infections
- Sexual exploitation and trafficking
- Natural Disaster (specially Flood, Landslide and Earthquake) victims
Challenges for Children
These Challenges for Children in Nepal have emerged over a decade of strikes, political strife, and other conflicts that have shattered Nepal’s fragile economy. Thus, poor families are left with even bleaker opportunities to maintain a decent livelihood. In this society, children are targets and remain vulnerable to abuse, exploitation, separation from family, recruitment conflict- related purposes and illegal detention resulting in limited opportunities within the society for young people to be successful. As the reinstatement of a stable government continues, the Nepalese people face issues of reconciliation, social inclusion and child protection.
Numbers at a Glance
- Only 41 percent of children ages 3-5 have access to early childhood development programs; and
- Approximately 84 percent of adolescents and youth have dropped out of the formal education system.

The scholarship covers their accommodations, school fees, food, uniforms and basic stationery. Through this program, each child’s personal development is encouraged through his/her educational activities. The scholarship program continues to motivate students, improves their performance, and sparks their desire for further education.
To provide education and better health for children, HNF aimed to sponsor 10 children within the year 2016 and 20 children within 2020. We believe that any effort and support made by our organization can make many lives better and safer. As a result of sponsorship, many children will be protected from life on the street and will gain the gift education. They can be competitive in the world as they get better health and education.
