Education is a power that can change the lives of many unfortunate and disadvantaged children in Nepal. By providing an opportunity to educate, you can help with your small steps to bring the quality in the lives of many children, who desperately are in need of the very opportunity that we generally take as granted. We, therefore would like to invite you, as a general member, to be a part of NAA’s One Family: One Child Sponsorship Program.
You will be given away a piggy bank (coin box) which you can take home. You, your family and friends can donate any change to the piggy bank. Once the piggy bank is filled up with small changes that generally puts unwanted weights into your wallet, all you have to do is notify us and we’ll pick up the piggy bank and replace it with a new one.
What is One Family One Child Sponsorship Program?
One Family One Child Sponsorship Program is a charity initiative of Nepalese Australian Association (NAA). The whole idea of One Family One Child Sponsorship Program is to encourage each Nepalese family to support one individual child in Nepal.
Where will my donation go?
Your donation will go to the Solu Khumbu, Sotang, Kerung, Nele and Necha regions of Nepal and will be used to provide learning opportunities to needy children. The primary focus is on girls, disabled children and dalit (untouchable) boys.
How much is the sponsorship amount?
It costs about $100 per year to put a child through school and you can make an enormous difference to the lives of these children.
How do I fund raise?
You will be given away a piggy bank (coin box) which you can take home. You can donate any change to the piggy bank. Once the piggy bank is filled up with small changes that generally puts unwanted weights into our wallet, all you have to do is notify us and we’ll pick up the piggy bank and replace it with a new one.
Can I sponsor a child without collecting a coin box?
Absolutely. You can transfer your donation directly to our account by March of each year. If you have young children at home, you may as well want to collect your coin box. This will help initiate the conversation with your children about where we came from and what it is like helping another children of similar age.
Who is managing this sponsorship program in Nepal?
One Family One Child Sponsorship Program is managed by Nepalese Australian Association in partnership with Australian Himalayan Foundation. Australian Himalayan Foundation will administer the sponsorship program in Nepal.
How do I know if my contribution is bringing a positive change to a child?
Nepalese Australian Association in conjunction with the Australian Himalayan Foundation will produce an annual report on the scholarship program which will be communicated publicly.
