Sponsorship Program

The Sambhav Nepal Foundation has launched the Child Education Sponsorship Program in collaboration with the trekking and travel companies Ace the Himalaya. The goal of this program is to provide school-level education to underprivileged but deserving children so as to empower them to better their future prospects through education. Disabled, conflict-affected, abandoned or orphaned, these children hail from very destitute families from remote Gorkha villages, of northern Nepal.

Ace the Himalaya is one of our main supporters and major collaborators of this program. For more information, visit the official website of Ace the Himalaya.

The collaborative efforts towards the scholarship program have shown promising results in ameliorating the quality of living of the children. The education sponsorship program depends on the generosity of the clients who travel with Ace the Himalaya, while Sambhav Nepal identifies the children most in need and oversees the coordination and monitoring aspects of the program.

Who the beneficiaries are:

  • Children from impoverished backgrounds who haven’t had the chance to complete their education.
  • Children belonging to the so-called social “low caste” as defined by Hinduism.
  • Children from poor families who are academically brilliant and wish to enroll in better institutions.
  • Orphans and destitute children.
  • Children directly affected by the armed conflict.
  • Children who show potential not only in academics but also in extracurricular activities.

How we nominate the children for sponsorship:

Firstly, we go to the villages and try to find out about the background and family-history of the child. For verification, we check the facts with the other villagers. When we are sure that we have a genuine case, we ask the guardian of the child to fill an application form and submit it with supporting documents, duly attested by their school, concerned department and the District Coordination Committee. We then make a profile of the nominated children based on the facts and keep with us. When we find people who are interested in sponsoring the education for an underprivileged child, we send them the details of the nominated children and organize the sponsorship.

Where your contribution goes:

Investing in children is investing in the future. You have the willpower to make a difference in the lives of the poor by supporting this project with your donation. Depending upon the type of sponsorship you choose, your contribution goes to pay the child’s tuition fees, meals and accommodation, stationery items, regular health check-ups, etc.

How the distribution and monitoring of the funds work:

Local guardians will be authorized to utilize this fund for the children’s education. We have the local monitors who will ensure that the funds are used wisely for its purpose and who will also evaluate whether the children are really benefited. Moreover they will report the children’s progress in school. We will periodically send you the children’s regular progress report to assure you that the contribution you made has indeed been useful for the purposes for which it was intended.

Sponsorship Options:

Premium Sponsorship

The premium sponsorship facilitates the children with an opportunity to study in a private English-medium school in a metropolitan area. This sponsorship package has the widest coverage in supporting a child’s education: USD 120 to USD 250 per child per month includes tuition, meals, hostel accommodation, uniform, regular health check-ups, etc. Children who are talented and stand out from the rest are nominated in this category.

Regular Sponsorship

This is a basic sponsorship that contributes to the child’s education in the village school – most likely a government school – that s/he is presently enrolled in. A monthly sponsorship of USD 20 sufficiently covers the tuition, stationery and uniform at state-run school. Since the education provided in government schools cannot always compete with that in private schools, we highly suggest considering the Regular Sponsorship as the last option.

Special Sponsorship

The special sponsorship covers the education of the child in an English-medium school in a metropolitan area, but does not include accommodation and meals. The monthly contribution of USD 40 to USD 70 covers tuition, uniform and regular health check-up’s. This sponsorship requires that the child has a relative in a metropolitan area (ex. Kathmandu, Pokhara, Gorkha, etc.) where s/he will be staying, thus obviating the need for the Special Sponsorship to cover accommodation and food.

With your contribution going directly towards the educational needs, we will update you on a regular basis with the progress the child is making. Your support translates into a very tangible, positive and praiseworthy result for the child. Further, we will mediate the communication between you and the child to keep you in constant touch. Sambhav Nepal will send a package that includes the child’s letter to you, school reports and photos.

We strongly urge a long-term commitment from the sponsors as the child will not be able to support himself/herself at least until high school level and would have to return to the old situation once the sponsorship ends. If your sponsored child is extremely talented, he/she may even get the opportunity to study abroad, which can certainly benefit them. This is what we believe and plead you for your generosity.

We realize the importance of education in the physical, psychological and personal growth for any individual, without which a sound future cannot be envisioned. We are committed to channelling your donations to the children via Sambhav Nepal, ensuring the children are directly benefited. Our resolve lies in combating and reversing the misfortune that the innocent children have faced in their lives.

Donation Option

We accept cash, bank transfer and credit/debit card payments.
