About Us


 Our Story:

Act for Humanity (AFH) Foundation was founded in 2011 by Bhim Thapaliya.  As an immigrant with illiterate parents, Bhim found it extremely challenging for him and his family to start a new life in the United States.  Despite the challenge of learning a new language and culture, Bhim was able to help refugees struggling with the same problems through education, mentorship, and leadership. His passion is to improve the lives of immigrants in the United States as well as supporting individuals who are suffering from poverty in Nepal and rural parts of Kenya. Over the past eleven years, AFH has impacted hundreds of individuals in Lancaster County and in Nepal, and the organization continues to grow and has expanded its work in Kenya.


AFH strives to achieve its goals by creating programs and fostering partnerships that benefit and help build opportunities for refugees/immigrants and high-achieving students who are in desperate need of support at home and abroad.​​

AFH Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) organization in the United States.
