THE CAUSE: HIMALAYAN LIFE
Presently, Himalayan Life (HL) is positively transforming the lives of more than 150 young children, providing support for their educational journey from early childhood to undergraduate studies. HL provides housing throughout the week for students whose homes are simply too far away from the school to attend otherwise. 70% girls.
With the funds raised from C5TS, a long-held dream of establishing an endowment fund is now within reach. It is a $3 per-day-be-child project. The first $100,000 of the endowment fund, sitting in a simple savings account in Nepal at 11% interest, will generate annual interest of $11,000 – enough to pay for 30 kids’ lives to be turned around, perpetually year after year.
The impact that this could have on their lives and those around them is remarkable; each child has the opportunity for lasting transformation through higher learning.
