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.


This year we have decided to postpone our Charity Tour to Pilgrimage sites in India. In place of the tour, we are organizing a Free Vision Care Camp in partnership with Tibetan Heart Foundation and local eye hospital in Mainpat, which is located in Central India.  We received a donation of 1000 reading glasses from Forgotten International, a Bay Area based non-profit organization. We will provide free eye checkup and reading glasses to 2000 or more people. We will need funds to organize the venue, accommodations, meals and travel logistics for the medical professionals. If you would like to support this initiative, please make your donations at our GoFundMe page or you can mail a check to our address.

Please join us at our Fundraising Dinner on November 11, 2023, at Gyuto Center, 6401 Bernhard Ave, Richmond CA for this Vision Care Camp. Please send us your RSVP to or call us at 510-674-6000 by November 1, 2023.

If you are unable to join us at the dinner, you can still support us with your kind donations.


Dear students, we understand that many of you are seeking scholarships for your further studies. Unfortunately, we have already budgeted and closed the scholarship for 2023. Since Delek Children’s Foundation is a very small organization and we have very limited resources. Therefore, we cannot take any more scholarships requests for 2023. We may consider those students who have already sent their requests, but it may not be possible for 2023. We are reviewing their applications and also require some research about their status. Once we learned more, then we will respond to their emails about our decisions. If you have any questions, please send an email to only.
