OUR VISION : Our Vision is for all Nepalese children to have access to education, to obtain adequate healthcare and for all girls to be free and to receive equal treatment and, ultimately, for all children to be empowered to achieve their potential.
OUR MISSION: We offer hope and opportunity to Nepal’s most impoverished children by providing them with what is every child’s birthright: Freedom, Education and Healthcare.
It’s the promise I made to myself more than 25 years ago, the first time I went to Nepal and was blown away by the poverty of the children I encountered in the villages. As I slipped into my sleeping bag on the third day of the trek, I had one of those real ‘aha’ moments – like a cartoon bubble over my head. I told myself that I wanted to spend the rest of my days improving the lives of the wonderful but terribly impoverished kids I met all over Nepal.

Since that “aha” moment, Olga and the Nepal Youth Foundation have rescued more than 12,000 girls from virtual slavery, restored more than 5,000 severely malnourished children to health, and transformed the lives of thousands of other Nepali children through NYF’s diverse innovative programs.
