We have to make the world a better place, albeit with small steps at a time. This belief led us to the creation of a benevolent fund HLE Cares which was established with our small helping hands, impacting on less privileged people. And what more than leading a children to education, which will enable them to be a global citizen and open an ocean of opportunities for them.
We always consider we are responsible to give something back to the society in which we operate. With a chance to create a new life for somebody, we believe it is through education we can transform and enrich lives.
The general objective of this program is to be committed to the cause of providing the right to education for children living and working at difficult circumstances, and ensure them the liberty to enjoy their childhood through education and awareness opportunities.
- To help children from disadvantaged background for their education.
- To assist people who are working with similar vision as ours and work together.
- To encourage HLE Nepal team to get involved in areas like mentoring and volunteering.
The followings are the target groups of the Education Support Program of HLE Cares.
- Children of low income families
- Street and homeless children

HLE Cares is currently working with four organizations as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility. They are:
With Asha Foundation, we are working on improving the quality of education by providing stationeries and funding the salaries of teachers.

Besides a monetary donation that is used for education, organizing workshops, food, and lodging for underprivileged children, we are working with Samaanta’s fellows by mentoring them on various programs.

With a focus on helping girls from marginalized communities in various areas, we are working with SAATH in a “Hakuna Matata” project. We have been helping children infected and affected with HIV/AIDS and conflict to attain the proper education and invest in capacity building.

Working with underprivileged women and children from marginalized communities, we are helping ASMAN by providing stationery and uniforms to students.

In our journey towards helping the less fortunate, we have partnered with three different organisations so far:
Aama ko Ghar
Aama ko Ghar is a social service organisation which helps senior citizens and children by providing shelter and security. This organisation is run by Dil Shova Shrestha.
In October 2013, HLE Cares sponsored a lunch program for 70 senior citizens and street children. Clothes were also donated at the program.
Prayas is a non-profit organisation working for the welfare of street children and drug users. The organisation is involved in several activities such as providing day care and counselling services to street children. Prayas also works with PLHIV people and refers them to rehabilitation centres and V.C.T. centres.
This organisation is run by Elisha Shrestha and Anirudh Chettri. They can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit their Facebook page for more information.
In April 2014, HLE Cares helped set up a classroom by donating three sets of tables, six desks, one bookshelf and some desktop computer along with various educational materials.
CYF (Children & Youth First)
CYF provides home for children whose parents cannot afford to take care of them. They provide them with food, education, shelter and most importantly a nurturing environment.
This organisation is run by Haushala Thapa. You can visit their Facebook page for more information.
Since 2013, HLE Cares has been sponsoring one child – Sabina who used to live on the streets with her parents. In March 2014, the team also visited CYF and hosted a small art competition for the children.
