Chase Award Distribution - $25K

Last November, Ganga Ghar won the Chase Community Giving award of $25,000. We won this award by receiving over 1,700 votes to rank 26th among the best small charities in the country. We extend our thanks to all of our supporters who helped us receive this award.

The Chase award has allowed us to expand our efforts into new projects that advance toward our mission of improving the lives of impoverished children and families in Nepal. We’d like to share some information about how we’re allocating these funds to reach beyond our existing sponsorship programs. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
