Wonderful news! Last year, our very first Bright Futures scholar, Samip, graduated from Air Link International College of Aviation in Manila with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering -- magna cum laude! Samip was just 10 years old when he started in our scholarship program. Now a young man in his early twenties, he has achieved his dream of an engineering degree and has returned to Nepal to start his career at Yeti Airlines. Congratulations, Samip! In the meantime, our second scholar, Prajwal, graduated from London Metropolitan University with a B.A. degree in Internet Technology. He has formed his own internet design and management company in Kathmandu and his own career is well underway. He is also acting as our in-country tech for development of a telemedicine linkup project between the Bhotechaur Health Clinic and the University of Michigan Medical Center. Way to go, Prajwal!
Bright Futures Foundation is a nonprofit organization based in Grants Pass, Oregon. Our primary work is in Nepal where we sponsor two programs: (1) support for the Bhotechaur Health Clinic
, a rural medical clinic serving a large population in a vast area of the Himalayan foothills, and (2) scholarships
for bright, motivated children from the poorest families to receive a high quality education so they can go on to become leaders in their communities.
Operating with an all-volunteer board and no paid staff in the U.S., we are dedicated to maximizing the impact of every dollar we raise through our fundraisers and your donations.
We invite you to watch our video, enjoy the slideshow of our work in Nepal, and explore our website to learn more about us and our projects.
