Shanti Children’s Foundation


We began in 1997 with the sponsorship of just one Nepali child’s education. Founded by artist and traveler Pam Whitworth, Shanti Children’s Foundation has grown organically (and inevitably), spreading from friend to friend. Today as a not-for-profit 501(c)3 charity we send almost one hundred disadvantaged kids to school in the Kathmandu valley of Nepal.


Most of our children originally come from remote areas where there is either no school or one of extremely poor quality and unreliable stability. Poverty is still the daily reality in Nepal, so without support  these children would have no opportunity to obtain the education that will make it probable for them to lead a better, more optimistic life.

For almost twenty years we have been educating needy children in Nepal through individual sponsorships. At a time when there is so much bad news in our world, these children are a ray of light.  For a small investment annually, one can bring hope into their lives and the possibility of a brighter future. Education will give them tools as they  step into the modern world. It will also help keep them safe from trafficking and other forms of abuse. Over time, increased literacy will also help lay the groundwork for a more stable Nepal.
