Nothing looks more clearly toward the future than education. And nothing else has education’s power to transform lives. For Nepali children, Sherpas, and village girls at risk to traffickers —for any child facing daunting odds because of caste, gender, disability or poverty—education offers a path forward to opportunity and hope, and the freedom to make choices in a world that will almost certainly be very different from their parents’.
HEALTH AND DENTAL CARE
Life-saving. For many in Nepal, healthcare is unaffordable and out of reach. We help children and families, many of whom have never seen a doctor before, to receive medical care.
Life-changing. Oral health is important, too. Children sponsored by TF receive routine dental care and related services such as orthodontics as a part of our programs.
Over the years TF has funded many different special projects. Following the earthquakes of 2015 funding was provided to rebuild two schools near Melamchi, just north of Kathmandu. Other projects include providing dining hall furniture for a retirement home for Tibetan refugees, installing a new water system and equipment for a local medical clinic, bringing hydroelectric power to the remote village of Chyangba as well as numerous other special projects. TF volunteers are continuously looking for ways to bring help and hope where it can do the most good.
