Since its inception, NHCF has 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 to learn more about ECDC.
