Quick update on our three fundraisers of the summer of 2017:

Firstly, five of our children and their chaperone took part in the Tenzing Hilary Everest Marathon. You will remember that a group of them was training hard for the race when the earthquake occurred in 2015 and all plans were, of course, cancelled. The team is thrilled to have completed the race in one piece, and for a recap of their trek up to EBC and run down, please click here. You can find profiles of the team members here; it is wonderful to see how the children have grown and prospered since their arrival at Kailash Home.

Secondly, one of our trustees, Stephan Michel, took part in the Mallorca Ironman 70.3 race in May and you can find his account of the harrowing experience here.

Finally, on 15th April, our Patron David Tait MBE once again left the comforts of his home, this time to attempt his 6th Summit of Everest in order to raise much needed funds for abused children via the NSPCC and to also kindly raise the profile of HYF and the children of Kailash Home. David was turned away from the last bits of the summit by poor weather conditions, please read his dispatches here for a fascinating and inspiring recap.

Today, HYF UK cares for over 200 children in Nepal and Bhutan and has been able to finance the construction of purpose-built facilities at each location with the help of its generous sponsors.

At present, the focus for HYF UK is to enrich our programmes for the students by strengthening the quality of education and expanding our extracurricular activities. To this end, we are expanding our facilities at Kailash Home with an Education Centre; we have completed a Support for Learning programme; and we are seeking funds for a secondary education endowment.
