In response to the overwhelming need for orphanages in Nepal, Namaste House, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization was incorporated in April 2001. The mission of Namaste House is to establish, develop, and maintain a multi faith, home-style orphanage committed to providing equal opportunities for all ethnicities, classes and genders. Namaste House is dedicated to providing a high standard of nutrition, education and healthcare, as well as a solid sense of family, community and cultural identity for the orphans. The children will gain a sense of security and belonging, thus receiving the opportunity to potentialize themselves. Namaste House will support these goals until the children are able to make the transition into their adult lives.

You will find this message rather angry; good.

Thirteen years ago my mother, Cindy Kennedy, and I ventured to Nepal on an internship. From there she went on to found an orphanage by the name Namaste House.

Recently she has died, probably attributed to an aching heart, one that was undeniably damaged by the complete takeover, which Visma Raj Paudel committed. His takeover of my mother's dream was disgusting, but I was fine with it. As long as the children are okay. But now, looking back on everything, I decided to check in on the project.

Upon reading the "About Us" section of Namaste House's website, I was enraged. No, you filthy b*stard, Namaste House was not "your dream"; you didn't help establish it with the help of friends, my mother established the entire project, you were just a f**king employee.

Every project Namaste House is presently affiliated with was the idea of my mother; you stole her dreams, and take all of the credit for them. In fact, much of the writing on Namaste House's website is my mother's.

Now, Visma uses funds directed towards the orphanage to feed his desires. He currently owns two hotels and a restaurant. These assets were undeniably obtained by misusing the donations from loving individuals. Recently a complete audit has been requested by donors, but Namaste House has refused to reveal how its funds are being spent.

I hope every donor knows that your position is the result of a complete takeover, and that the current organization is filled with corruption and money laundering.
