Every year the need for college tuition increases as the children of Nepal Orphans Home grow older and as Life’s Handy Work continues to make more connections with impoverished students in Nepal. Currently our college student population is projected to double each year. All of our college students give back by volunteering their time at Nepal Orphans Home in the form of tutoring, providing structured play or supervising the younger children.
While the majority of our support goes to students who attend college in Nepal, there has been an increased interest from students to study outside of Nepal. We are committed to providing both structural and financial support for students who persue scholarships to study abroad. Ultimately we give priority to students whose goal is to return to Nepal to improve environmental or humanitarian conditions.
We are super excited that serving others is becoming a trend in schools around the country. We have expanded our education programs to include students right here at home. Life’s Handy Work provides educational resources on human trafficking, impacts of extreme poverty and the power of education to schools free of charge. In addition to resources on our website we also provide speakers who can work with both small and large groups.
