OUR HISTORY

Nepal Youth Foundation (UK) is a UK registered charity (1182261) and was founded in 2013 by husband and wife team Simon Russell and Gina Parker as a result of many years of collaboration between the first charity they founded; Children of the Himalayas and Nepal Youth Foundation Nepal.

Nepal Youth Foundation offers hope and opportunity to Nepal’s most impoverished children by providing them with every child’s birth right: vital healthcare, education and a safe environment. 

Nepal Youth Foundation (UK) now forms part of a growing global organisation with its Head Office based in California, its Operations Office appropriately located in Kathmandu and three further offices worldwide.  The US operation was founded by Olga Murray; a US research attorney and frequent visitor to Nepal, in 1990.

In the decades that we have been working with children in Nepal, NYF has expanded not only in the number of children we support, which now reaches well over 50,000,  but also in the ways in which we help them.
