Supporting Our Global Community
As part of giving back to our communities, Tom Barrow Company is proud to sponsor an orphaned student through Himalayan Children’s Charities (HCC), based in Georgia.
TBCo has been the student’s sponsor for the last six years through the HCC Signature Program. The company’s sponsorship covers the student’s education at an English-Medium boarding school in Kathmandu and contributes to the funding of all of the components of the Signature Program. This includes tuition, room, board, clothing, medical care and supervision by house parents at the group home. It also includes innovative mentorship programs.
“We receive regular updates about the student we sponsor, and it’s exciting to hear about her progress and academic success,” shares TBCo’s Mike Shea.
"Himalayan Children’s Charities creates paths out of poverty for orphaned and abandoned Nepali children. Through investment in quality education, innovative mentorship and a loving family environment, we help build lives of leadership."
HCC’s programs include:
HCC’s Signature Program: HCC’s founding program provides care, education, and mentorship for up to 50 orphaned and abandoned children who have come out of the state orphanage system.
Earthquake Orphan Scholarship Program (EOSP): The EOSP Programs (which encompasses the Dhading Children’s Initiative and the Rural Education Empowerment Program) cumulatively support around 100 orphaned or impoverished children in rural regions most heavily damaged by the 2015 earthquakes.
Anti-Trafficking Campaign: HCC has partnered with Cause, Vision, and Sasane to create and distribute a Nepali language comic book, entitled “Chameli Goes to School”. The comic book, distributed in rural, high-risk areas, raises awareness and educates students about the dangers of human trafficking in their own communities.
