Thanks to our worldwide community of donors, CYF's impact is growing every day. Here are some highlights of what we have accomplished in Nepal since 2009.
Since 2009, we have educated 70 students residentially at Life Vision Academy. We have also sponsored the education of 30 students in and around Kathmandu, covering their day school tuition fees and annual textbooks.
women ARTISANS trained
We have been offering free knitting and sewing trainings since the Haushala Cooperative opened in 2013. In 2016, we trained 21 women, and our goal in 2017 is to train 50. We have opened 3 rural hubs and 1 women's co-working space for female entrepreneurs in Kathmandu.
relief aid distributed
After the devastating earthquakes of April and May 2015, we formed the CYF Collective to bring relief supplies to 91 villages. This initiative provided 2,698 villagers with supplies like blankets, shelters, emergency medical care, toilets and school supplies.
rural schools rebuilt
The 2015 earthquakes destroyed the schools of roughly one million children in Nepal. We fully rebuilt 2 rural government schools that had been destroyed: the Shree Bagh Bairav school in Kaleswor, Lalitpur and the Milan Primary School in Chyasingkarkha, Kavre.
Kids trained in stem
In 2016, we launched a campaign to close Nepal's opportunity gap in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). Our program focuses on teaching underprivileged children and girls to code. So far we've trained over 50 kids.
