Meghan Markle and Prince Harry use their Instagram handle, @sussexroyal, to highlight a handful of charities on a monthly basis as part of their Forces for Change initiative. Yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex offered their fans a glimpse into one of the charities they’re supporting, BlinkNow, with a heartwarming video.

Markle and Prince Harry explained in their caption that they received the video straight from BlinkNow, an organization that empowers and cares for underprivileged children in Nepal. And, since the video offers such meaningful insight into how the foundation supports young children, they opted to “shine a light on this amazing organization in Nepal and the work they are doing” by sharing it on Instagram.

The duke and duchess’s caption went on to share a story about the genesis of the organization. “The BlinkNow organization’s journey started on the very real concept where one young woman decided to help one young girl, hoping to make one small difference,” it read.

That small act of kindness took off, and today the BlinkNow organization “provides a loving home for over 40 children, a school for 350 young students, a safe house for 10 of their most at-risk female students, a new school campus made from the earth and many more incredible initiatives.”

The new parents then quoted BlinkNow founder, Maggie Doyne, in their caption, writing, “We have the power to create the world we want to see every day.”

Then, they further explained the charity’s initiative and core values: “Their mission is to change the world by empowering Nepal’s children. They do this by providing quality education, a safe environment and through inspiring others, but almost more importantly, they do this by believing in community first. They believe that if given the proper tools and initiatives, people and communities anywhere in the world can raise themselves out of poverty.”

Markle and Prince Harry concluded their message by thanking BlinkNow for the “kind message and continuing to be a #ForceForChange.”

Bravo to the duke and duchess for shedding light on such worthy causes.
