- February: Early Childhood Development Centre
Since its inception, NHCF had been exploring possibility of charitable activities in Nepal. This came to fruition in 2013 with CRA approval to partner with Early Childhood Development Centre (ECDC) led by CNN Hero Pushpa Basnet. ECDC (established in 2005, located in Kathmandu) provides support to the children of incarcerated parents. The children under its care receive regular medical checkup, vaccinations, and are enrolled in a local school. Please visit ECDC Nepal to learn more. Funds raised by NHCF and other individuals were remitted to ECDC for procurement of educational materials to the needy students.
