Consider sponsoring a child


Through individual sponsorship of a child, as well as general donations, the Himalayan Youth Foundation - UK is providing these youngsters with the living skills necessary to pursue self-sustaining livelihoods, thereby enhancing the quality of life for themselves and the communities in which they live.

Full sponsorship is a long-term commitment. Financial support is encouraged for the duration of the child's education at the Kailash Hostel. The sponsor receives photographs and biographical data of the child, occasional letters and greeting cards along with the child's quarterly progress reports. We welcome and encourage our sponsors to correspond with their children and even to visit them.

In addition to their education by attendance of external schools close to the hostel, the hostel management provide care for the children and engage them in a varied programme of activities, which include sporting, musical, environmental and community activities. A programme of home visits are arranged in which groups of children are taken back to their home villages to visit family and remind them of their roots. The hostel staff are very aware that at the end of their stay with HCF the children must be prepared to return to Nepali life.

The cost of sponsorship for new sponsors in 2020/21 is £1,200 per annum.

This sum covers all costs for the child, including accommodation, food, uniforms, clothing, education, books, health, welfare and external activities.
