A book, ‘Olga’s Promise: One Woman’s Commitment to the Children of Nepal’, co-written by Olga Murray, Founder of Nepal Youth Foundation, is available for purchase in Hong Kong via the Nepal Youth Foundation Hong Kong office. It tells the story of how Olga Murray, a 60 year old attorney with the California Supreme Court, made a promise to improve the lives of Nepali children.
Over the past 30 years more than 45,000 children have benefited from her work. ‘Olga’s Promise’ is the story of how she fulfilled and even surpassed her dream. Olga is living proof that it is never too late to make a difference in the world.
