When Kylesh had to do research on a charitable organization in 8th grade, he came across one that was providing therapy to children in Nepal. He soon came to learn that many girls there go through major trauma, triggered by everything from physical and emotional abuse at home, to sexual abuse and sex trafficking. Having two sisters himself, he knew he wanted to help.
As a freshman in high school, Kylesh developed the "Nepal House US Chapter." This all-girl school in Nepal not only educates underprivileged and impoverished girls, but also provides them a safe haven and a place to heal from the trauma they've experienced in their lives. Thanks to this combination of education and therapy, these girls can become contributing members to society.
Over 500 girls have directly benefited from this school, and 25 girls are currently enrolled. There's a waiting list, but Kylesh believes in quality over quantity, which means that each girl receives the attention she deserves. In addition, the teachers involved in these programs take the time to educate other schools on how to deal with traumatized children. There are workshops for mothers so they can learn how to implement lessons from school at home. Kylesh is committed to ensuring the safety and healing for the girls continues into the future.
