Established in 1990, the Nepal Youth Foundation (NYF) is a U.S. based, non-profit organization devoted to bringing hope to the most destitute children in the beautiful but impoverished kingdom of Nepal. With a personal touch, NYF provides them with what should be every child's birthright - education, housing, medical care and loving support. NYF hires staff without regard to caste, religion, disability, ethnicity or political affiliation, and fosters tolerance & diversity.
