Friends of Humanity and Friends of Nepal

Today we are talking about two associations in the United States involved in helping people in Nepal, and they perform the task in a way which is similar to ours. Padma Nepal and Friends of Nepal, New Jersey (FONNJ) organize small scale fundraising, involving the local communities (respectively Park City, Colorado and Somerville, New Jersey) and focusing on small projects, which can be satisfied with a reasonable amount.

Padma Nepal established the Optimistic Children and Youth Home of Nepal, to give shelter to 15 girls and one boy, while FONNJ is working on a vocational program to allow incarcerated women to learn a profession and not to be forced back to crime or into prostitution when they get out of jail.

Friends of Humanity salutes these projects which share our philosophy and our engagement.
