OUR TEAM

The team behind CYF has been working for years on social causes affecting Nepal. We are a rights-based, results-oriented team coming from varied socioeconomic backgrounds, all wishing to demonstrate the concern of Nepali youth about social and development issues.

CYF Nepal is our parent organisation. Our international branches serve as support teams to help fund CYF's projects in Nepal. Click here if you'd like to contact a specific country team, and click here if you'd like to learn about joining us.
