The Story

We are two 10th grade students at Kent Place School in Summit, New Jersey, and we are traveling to Nepal this summer. Children and Youth First founded Life Vision Academy, a boarding school for disadvantaged kids and teens from across Nepal. The school is located in Godavari, Nepal and currently has 58 students between Pre-K and Grade 10. They recently built a new school building and we are raising money to buy paint and other supplies to help finish the classrooms in June. The classrooms are still under construction and when it opens it will open its doors to 200 students.


Children and Youth First is a locally-founded, locally-led NGO in Nepal. All donations will be processed through Children and Youth First's US support team which is a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization.


Children and Youth First also runs the Haushala Women's Cooperative, which encourages marginalized women to build social and financial independence through knitting and sewing. It employs some of the Life Vision Academy students' mothers. Half of the profits return to the female artisans and the other half helps fund Life Vision Academy. If anyone is interested in supporting the cooperative, they can buy products at www.haushala.com (or etsy.com/shop/haushala)
