The Himalayan Children’s Foundation (HCF) was co-founded by Tashi Gurung of Kathmandu and David Bidwell of Geneva, subsequent to an informal cooperation process that had been under way for 3 years. During that period, their objective  was to bring the poor children of Dhorpatan, a village of Tibetan refugees managed by a Swizz organization, to Kathmandu for their education and care.

HCF was organized in 1977 with the help of Mr. Hubert Secretan and the Greendale Foundation of Guernsey, to formalize its activity and provide it with the necessary structure. The children were initially accommodated in the home of a teacher.
