Lifting the Children of Nepal Out of Poverty

On April 25, 2015 my daughter and I witnessed the historic 7.8 earthquake first-hand.
This devastating event tragically impacted thousands of children that need our help.
We created the Shaping Young Minds Foundation (SYMF) to aid these children,
to give them a chance at becoming a successful new generation of Nepal.

Our Mission

With donor and volunteer support, we strive to empower the children of Nepal to improve their own lives and their communities by building the path to a better future.


By providing scholarships and supporting community development efforts, we focus to improve literacy rates and protect these precious children from exploitative labor and human trafficking.


Nepal is one of the most socially, economically and geographically disadvantaged countries in the world. We give you up-to-date information on how your support truly makes a difference.
