TRIFC's Vision & Goals:

The primary mission of The Rose International Fund for Children (TRIFC.org) is to improve the lives of children in Nepal, particularly those with disability.

TRIFC.org raises funds through donations, grants and hands-on fundraising activities. With the funds raised we provide financial support to existing non-profit organizations in Nepal that share our goals and vision. Our focus is on providing support in the areas of education, medical needs, nutrition, facilities and environment improvements. We participate in project planning, coordination and implementation. In addition, we raise awareness of the living conditions of these children by documenting and publishing our project work. TRIFC.org believes in sharing resources with those less fortunate.


Annapurna Base Camp Trek 2012

Trek to Annapurna Base Camp - 13000 ft above sea level to witness the majestic Himalayan Mountain peaks and see how our fundraising efforts can help children with disabilities thrive in a country whose government and society hinder their equal participation to nation building

Purpose of Trek:

In Nepal, people with disabilities are thought to be cursed or suffering from a past-life sin. This trek will raise awareness and provide funds to support education, opportunity and empowerment for people with disability!

Goal of Trek:

To exceed $15,000 in donations to help fund existing Nepalese projects:

* School supplies for blind/visually impaired children

* Braille libraries & literacy projects

* Support for deaf women’s empowerment groups

* Food and nutrition support

* Medical and surgical support

* School sponsorship

    A huge thank you to "TOAST" for donating a cozy heated shirt for our top fundraiser! That'll definitely come in handy when we're at 13,000 feet! http://www.toast-clothes.com/

    Beautiful quote from Gina Rose: "The beauty of Nepal is embodied in a trek through Annapurna, the beauty of the human spirit is found in our compassion for children with a disability in a country with very few social services."

    Nice work Beth! Raising nearly $500 in just one day! Wahoo! And Lucy, way to raise your goal to $2000!!! I think we should all up our efforts to a minimum of $1500 so we can come closer to the team goal of $15,000. What do y'all think? I'm game!
