Health | Olga’s Promise Is that Nepali Children Will Be Healthy

Inadequate medical care is an urgent problem in Nepal which prevents children from fulfilling their potential. The Nepal Youth Foundation’s diverse programs address malnutrition, emotional health, and HIV/AIDS.

Nutritional Rehabilitation Homes | The NRHs use an innovative method to restore severely malnourished children to good health while educating their mothers in nutrition and child care. When mother and child return home, the mother shares her new knowledge with her family and neighbors, multiplying the impact.

Ankur Counseling Center | While psychology is only beginning to gain acceptance in Nepal, Ankur is a pioneer in therapy for disadvantaged children. Ankur also provides a wide range of trainings for people who work with youth.

New Life Center | The Center’s holistic approach treats and educates youngsters born with HIV/AIDS and their parents. We enable HIV-positive children to live full, meaningful lives and we teach their parents to keep them healthy.

Dietician Training | The Nepal Youth Foundation is initiating the first training course in Nepal for dieticians. We will train the staff of hospitals, organizations, and schools to provide healthy meals to people throughout the country.
