Why Donate To HCC

1. Mentorship of at-risk children creates positive futures.

Destitute children have little chance of survival in their society. Doesn’t every child deserve a chance?

2. Education breaks the poverty cycle.

Through quality education and leadership training, HCC students are becoming the young, vibrant leaders that Nepal needs to break the cycle of poverty.

3. Emotional well-being is vital for success.

HCC’s group home, “Khushi Ghar” (Happy Home) creates a family environment and nurturing house parents guide them in life skills, and the mentorship training.

4. Orphaned children are vulnerable to trafficking, child labor, and early marriage.

HCC scholarships for rural orphans allow them to stay in local communities and attend school.

5. HCC has a proven track record of accountability and responsibility

Since 2000, HCC has been solving problems and adding value with transparent processes, accessible personnel, and committed partners.
