YFN works in the fields of education, environment and health to further the following causes throughout Nepal:
How we work
The basic steps are simple--someone comes to us with an idea or a project. We help them figure out the details of the project and what they really want to do. They we work with them to eliminate other administrative hurdles, if necessary. Then we fund them and let them do the project the way they want to, with minimal supervision.
With time, we also intend to set up a platform where these people can showcase their accomplishments. We can also start some projects of our own and enlist individual volunteers if we think we can do it efficiently.
How we think
Often times, when people want to do some cool project, they end up being faced with multiple hurdles that detract from their ultimate objectives in implementing the project. We wish to eliminate these hurdles and act as coordinators or facilitators for these people so that they can get the best out of their intended projects.
As per our mission, we will support grassroots programs in the education, environment and health sectors only. While the need for macro-level awareness and advocacy is also paramount in Nepal, we think that similar organizations are addressing these issues well. However, there can never be enough grassroots projects.
