Olga Inspires on CBS Evening News: Still Sharing Her Life’s Mission

Olga Inspires on CBS Evening News: Still Sharing Her Life’s Mission

Olga inspires just about everyone she meets, so the NYF team was delighted when CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell asked to feature her recently.

Viewers who tuned in for the spot’s original airing on the night of July 5th, 2021 learned a bit about Olga’s mission: extending educational opportunities to Nepal’s children, as well as providing health, freedom, and shelter.

We are so grateful to CBS News correspondent Jamie Yuccas for helping Olga inspire new audiences with her story of personal impact in a world that often downplays “women of a certain age”. With support and solidarity from friends around the world, Olga and NYF are helping Nepalese children chase their dreams and build brighter futures for themselves, their families, and their communities!

“I don’t think about stopping,” Olga says. And neither does the global NYF team! Thank you all for being part of this incredible continuing journey!
