your kindness can help transform lives

Friends of First Steps Himalaya

With a monthly contribution of NZ$40 you can become a Friend of First Steps Himalaya and join other change-makers from around the world who are helping to change hundreds of lives.

Your monthly donations will support the ongoing running of FSH’s projects in Nepal, and enable us to spread our work even wider, helping more children in rural Nepal.

Friends of First Steps Himalaya will receive bi-annual reports detailing the current state and development of our projects. These reports are written in detail by our Nepal Director, and illustrated with plenty of photos so you can clearly see where your valuable contribution has gone.

Additionally, as a Friend of First Steps Himalaya, we would love for you to visit our projects to see for yourself the impact we are making together. We are currently setting up exclusive project tours with our Nepali Director, and look forward to inviting you to join us.


All money from Friends of First Steps Himalaya is pooled to support the running of our education projects in rural Nepal. We work directly with schools and communities to bring about long-term sustainable change. Your donation may support:

  • Project selection and approval process

  • Teacher training and refresher training programmes

  • Classroom refurbishment

  • Provision of teaching resources

  • Regular supervision and teacher support in our project schools

  • Ongoing monitoring and evaluation of our teachers and schools

As a result of our comprehensive training and support methods, the children in our project schools will benefit from a high standard of early childhood education and school support. Young children will be better prepared for school, and will be far more likely to complete their education. You can read more about why quality education is so important here.

Join us in making a difference to hundreds of young lives in rural Nepal - your kindness really can help transform lives.

Please note that you may remain a Friend of First Steps Himalaya for as long as you wish - there is no minimum or maximum period. As our work is generally on long-term projects, we hope that you will want to remain a sponsor for some time. If your circumstances change and you can no longer support us in this way, just let us know.
