Sponsorship of a child covers year-round care and education of an individual child. In most cases the support is for poor orphaned or semi-orphaned children who have no family home or support.

The current yearly fee amounts to US$ 1,900.00 and includes the initial expenses of bringing the child to Kathmandu, enrolling him/her into the HCF-run hostel and providing accommodation. The amount also covers tuition, food, books, stationary, lodging materials, uniforms, and medical care.

We request that sponsorship continues for at least 6 years, so as to allow the sponsored child to complete the first phase of his/her education and reach a level of self-sufficiency.

Sponsors will receive regular report cards from the school related to the child as well as a report from HCF on the child they have sponsored. We encourage contact with the child by letter although this is not essential and, should you visit Kathmandu, we would hope you would visit with your child. Donors have found this personal contact very rewarding. It is extremely gratifying to see the changes and improvements that take place when a child is helped by the donor through HCF.

Important note: The sponsorship fee is based on present and projected budgets taking into consideration inflation and other factors. We will endeavor to maintain the fee @ US$ 1,900 for the entire 6 year sponsorship period. However, should there be in major shift in inflation etc then we may need to review the fee structure and an increase may be necessary. Details of the fee structure budgets are available on request.
