Here is the orphanage I volunteered in 2012.
"Welcome to the Himalayan Foundation Nepal (HFN). HFN is an officially registered non-government organization (Govt. Regd. No. 935) associated with the Social Welfare Council of Nepal (SWC Regd. No. 24693). In 2007 our organization began with The Living Orphanage child which started by offering food, support and shelter to 4 high-risk orphaned children in desperate circumstances, each child with a unique and tragic story. Today the orphanage in Kathmandu has grown to provide care, shelter, support and education for over 15 Orphanage children.
We believe that all orphaned children in Nepal deserve a loving home with hope for the future. HFN has expanded its efforts to sponsoring the education of underprivileged children within the community and to offering a variety of volunteer programs that provide essential support to these communities. HFN gives volunteers the opportunity to become involved in social work that raises educational awareness, enhances the lives of villagers and improves educational development. We work in partnership with 6 other orphanages throughout Nepal where volunteers have the opportunityto change lives.
Volunteering with HFN will help the lives of these orphaned children and will have a lasting impact on the local community. HFN has various programs that give volunteers the opportunity to work with children in the orphanage, street children, womens empowerment programs, community health (HIV/Aids awareness), , paid teaching jobs, Free volunteer program and English teaching directly in the Kathmandu Valley or in rural villages throughout Nepal. HFN also offers ministry opportunities, Church planting, youth missions work, and vocational bible school programs. Let's work together to help make a lasting difference in the lives of those who need it most!"
