When you help HYF, you may be assured your contribution is used as stipulated by you. At present, all our individual donations go 100% to the children. The small overhead is completely covered by trustee donations. Many of our students are the first in their families to have the opportunity to learn in a formal classroom. Your support helps us to give the children of the Himalayas a chance to join the world of today while preserving their own culture and traditions.

Kailash Home – Nepal:
We provide our children with a loving home and an opportunity for a full education. We offer different sponsorships depending on the age of the children.
Long Term (grade 1 – grade 12)
This is a minimum 6 year commitment, with the intent of giving the children a stable family environment. Each child is sponsored by an individual. Sponsors may request to sponsor a boy or a girl, and are then provided with full details of the child chosen. Throughout the sponsorship period sponsors are provided with details of their child’s progress in school and general information about Kailash Home. Individual dialogue between the sponsor and child is actively encouraged via letters or emails. A number of sponsors have chosen to visit Nepal to meet the children. Long Term Sponsorship $1,900 per year. This amount covers all costs for the child, including accommodation, food, uniforms, clothing, education, medical care and some extra-curricular activities.
Finally the brightest students head for university. Nepali universities offer excellent courses. University programs vary in duration 2 to 4 years, in prices $2,000 – $4,000. These costs cover tuition and material costs only, as we expect the students to live in the community and to contribute to their own living costs. University sponsorship $2,000 – $4,000 per year.
We recognize that not all of our children are capable of progressing beyond grade 10, they will be provided with practical vocational training. The David Bidwell Vocational Fund was initially funded by a generous donor specifically to support further training to the children who cannot progress in the traditional academic system. Ongoing support to the Vocational Fund is needed.
CTAS – Bhutan
Your sponsorship will be compiled in a pool with other donations from across the world. It will be used to accommodate each child’s needs and educational quality. All sponsors will receive an annual report from the school on the progress and accomplishments of the students. Annual Sponsorship $600 per child. This amount covers a full year of care and education for a child while he or she is attending the Choki Traditional Art School.
