It’s hard to believe, but “Rising Children”, the Khushi Ghar student newspaper is 2 year old! We are so lucky to have amazing volunteers like Maia Pandey to shepherd the students through the process of putting the Rising Children together!


All the students are back at Khushi Ghar! Read about their adventures in their home villages. Up on the blog!


The new edition of Rising Children is out! We love the Khushi Ghar student newspaper and issue #5 is no exception.


Siwani & Saraswati were smart, studious, and driven, but had little opportunity to continue their education after grade 10… then they joined HCC and now Siwani is earning a Bachelors in Medical Laboratory Technology. Saraswati is studying Journalism. Our Higher Education Scholarships are unique in Nepal. Help these deserving students follow their dreams!


Ram is going to France to learn French technique! He has been offered an internship at a 3 star resort outside of Paris and we are so proud of him!!


In our latest Student Spotlight, Harsha talks about his goals and working towards them ❤️


Today is the @unitednations World Day of Social Justice- this year’s theme is “Closing the Inequalities Gap to Achieve Social Justice”. Gender, caste and geography all contribute to the inequities gap in Nepal. Some students, like these middle schoolers in Dhading, have to walk an hour each way to get to school. Poverty and gender politics further hinder even motivated students from being able to get an education. Donate today, in honor of #socialjusticeday, and help these students and others like them dream big and achieve their goals. Let’s bridge the inequalities gap together!

New issue of #KhushiGhar student newspaper, Rising Children!

“Since my childhood I had hoped to live in a good home, and eat good food. But now I can hope to be a successful person in my life.” 💕 Giving students like Kabita the opportunity to focus on learning and growing, without the worry of where they will live or eat is the kind of shift that changes lives.

Reaching out and changing one life can ripple through many lives. Our students are already improving the lives of the the generation coming – be a part of the change – reach out and touch a child’s life today. Donate now.


Access to quality education makes all the difference to children in Nepal. #TransformingEducation in impoverished countries like Nepal is a pathway out of poverty, indentured servitude and human trafficking. Investing in children has a lasting impact not only on that child’s life, but the lives of all the children they touch as they move through the world. This #InternationalYouthDay is focused on this kind of transformative shift for youth across the world. Donate today to help change the lives of children.
