HFN gives volunteers the opportunity to become involved in social work that raises educational awareness, enhances the lives of villagers and improves educational development.

Volunteer in Nepal and support a child Welcome to the Himalayan Foundation Nepal (HFN). HFN is an officially registered non-government organization (Govt. Regd. No. 935) associated with the Social Welfare Council of Nepal (SWC Regd. No. 24693). In 2007 our organization began with The Living Orphanage child which started by offering food, support and shelter to 4 high-risk orphaned children in desperate circumstances, each child with a unique and tragic story. Today the orphanage in Kathmandu has grown to provide care, shelter, support and education for over 15 Orphanage children. We believe that all orphaned children in Nepal deserve a loving home with hope for the future.

HFN has a vision to increase its living space to provide love and care for up to 50 children who need a home. HFN also hopes to expand the number of sponsored Community Children to 100. To help achieve these ambitious goals we hope to involve many more volunteers and have plans to extend the volunteer facilities to ensure they are comfortable during their stay at HFN. We hope to meet the needs and requirements for all the children through fund-raising, donations of money and goods, and much prayer! HFN also hopes to attract more people to the cultural exchange and organic farming program, where volunteers are given the opportunity to learn about farming practices and techniques along with a complete immersion in Nepalese culture . We want to spread the love of Jesus Christ here in Nepal so we can give hope to the less fortunate.
