Endowment Fund Campaign

Since its registration in late 2005 as a Canadian Charity with a mission to “enhance education opportunity to Nepali people through the medium of libraries”, the NLF has assisted in establishing libraries, both digital and conventional, in over 238 schools, communities and prisons across the country. Besides assisting in libraries, the NLF also provides training in library management; setting up ‘Book Clubs” to promote reading habits; setting up a ‘Home Library’ and advocates for library development in the country. We estimate over a million people have benefited from this work.

Nepal does not have a law that makes community or school libraries mandatory. The need to continue NLF’s work is therefore critical. The NLF is run entirely by volunteers and targeted project-based funding it receives from donors who value education and community service. This has made it possible to complete large number of projects, but has created enormous strain in managing its operating cost.

NLF Nepal has started a campaign to raise funds to establish an Endowment fund to address the situation and provide continuity to its work. The interest from the fund will be used to defray the foundations operational costs. We implore you to join the campaign and contribute to the fund. Your help will help us to open the doors of libraries across the nation.

The donations can be deposited in a dedicated endowment fund account in Nepal’s Machapuchre Bank or cheque sent to the Nepal Library Fund address below. A receipt will be received for all donations over $25.
