Delek Children's Foundation

[rev_slider alias=”slider-11″]

Delek Children’s Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization dedicated to providing children in need with an education and healthcare throughout the Himalayan region of India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet, irrespective of their ethnicity and national boundaries.

Our mission is to educate the Himalayan children giving them the opportunity to go to High School and College, and raise their own children with education and eventually help their own communities. Educating these children, giving them the proper nutrition and tools to develop into productive adults, have a better future and continue the cycle for future generations while saving the traditions and culture of the Himalayan people.


At Delek Children’s Foundation, we are deeply committed to making a positive impact on the lives of those in need, and we are reaching out to you with gratitude for your past support and a humble request for your continued generosity. This April, Ven Donyo will visit Nepal and India to oversee two major projects for people in Tsum and Nubri Valley, Nepal.

Wee are organizing a Vision Care Camp from April 19 -23 in Tsum and Nubri Valley in Nepal. Many residents suffer from preventable eye conditions such as cataracts, which significantly impair their vision and overall quality of life. Due to geographical remoteness and economic constraints, these communities often lack the means to access specialized medical care. Our goal is to make a lasting impact by providing comprehensive eye care, including vision screenings, eye examinations, cataract surgeries and the distribution of eyeglasses. Our local partner, Dr. Bidya Pant and his team will be offering their valuable time for the vision care camp. Ven. Donyo will be accompanied by a monk from Tsum and local official guide, during the eye camp group.

The second project will commence after the completion of the Eye Camp. Upon request from the elders of Tsum & Nubri Valley, Ven. Donyo will take 40 seniors on a pilgrimage to Dharamsala, India to get blessings from His Holiness Dalai Lama. Many seniors have never set foot outside from their villages and this pilgrimage holds immense cultural, spiritual, and psychological significance for the senior citizens of Tsum & Nubri Valley, Nepal who have a deep-rooted connection with the teachings of the Dalai Lama.

Therefore, we are reaching out to our cherished donors and supporters to seek financial support and make lasting memories for the elders of Tsum & Nubri Valley.

Financial Support: Your generous donations will go towards covering the costs of medical supplies, eyeglasses, shoes for children and other essential resources needed for the Vision Camp and the traveling expenses for the seniors pilgrimage.
