No matter what happens in your life, you will always have this home, these friends, the NYF family, and the power of the education you are receiving. I wish you bright happy days.

    Daughters and Sons, truly my Brothers and Sisters, As you progress in your studies and learn about and explore our world, always remember what you already know – that the key to your home is in your heart. You could make the whole world your home, if you wanted.

    What a wonderful milestone. I’ve been at the “old location.” It’s terribly exciting that the Boys and Girls will have such a great place to learn, grow, and share memories. Olga, we’re so proud of all that you’ve accomplished and all that’s been accomplished in your name. It truly is a time of celebration

  18. Phurchhoki

    Congratulations to Olga mom, Som dai, and all the dedicated members! Love and hugs to all the bhais and bahinis while they transition to Olgapuri. I can’t wait to visit the house.

  19. Marsha Cohen and Bob Feyer

    Congratulations to everyone who has worked so hard to make this dream come true. And especially to Olga – whose “encore” career ought to be an inspiration to everyone. It’s never too late, she has shown us, to make an incredible difference in the world, whether around the block or around the globe. Here is to many years for Olga to enjoy this milestone in her great achievement, this amazing foundation — and to decades of service by NYF to its community (hopefully until a day, alas not so soon, when such service is not needed). We hope to see Olgapuri Village some day.

  20. Gary

    Congratulations to everyone involved. The children of New Zealand send their best wishes. We are sure you will love your new home.

  21. Kit Chamberlain

    I am thrilled to see the Olgapuri has made it to completion after being a dream for so many years, and then an earthquake and a blockade! But you came through. I hope children and staff enjoy it and find great promise, peace, and fulfillment there!

  35. Kate Parnes

    Congratulations to NYF and all the devoted people who helped make this beautiful new village a reality. You are an example of what resilience, against many odds, looks like. May all of the children grow and flourish under your loving care.
