TF has been changing the lives of children, young women and families in Nepal through education, medical care and basic living assistance since 2007.



We make a difference for those who need it most.  All donations to Tsering's Fund are used completely in Nepal to help those in need, and any administrative costs are paid for personally by volunteers and TF board members.

The TF team works with local board members and volunteers to bring real change directly to the people of Nepal most in need. Our board members and volunteers in Nepal know the communities and where to get involved to create the greatest impact.
