sponsor a child

Education is one of the keys to escaping poverty.

NLT runs a child sponsorship programme to help children attend and excel at school.

The programme pays school fees, books and uniforms for children. In some cases funds may cover meals of other physical needs. Our programme caters for children living in the Kathmandu valley, through our head office, and in the rural south-eastern Terai district through our hospital in Lalgadh.

The programme covers ten years of schooling.

Donation can be paid monthly at €21  or annually at a cost of €252.

Thank you. Your contribution will help transform the development of a young person’s life in Nepal, as well as benefit the wider family and the community.

Upsana’s education

Upasana (pictured above) is sponsored by an Irish family to attend school. She is now aged 8 and is doing very well in school. Her year end reports are very positive.

Upasana presented as a quietly confident and outgoing young girl when we met her in 2018. Her parents are very thankful for the support and encouragement for her education and development. Get in touch if you wish to hear more about this education sponsorship programme.

Our Child Protection Policy 2016 is available on request.
