Mission: Nepal Orphans Home attends to the welfare of children in Nepal who are orphaned, abandoned, or not supported by their parents. NOH provides for the children’s basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing, as well as schooling and health care, and administers to their emotional needs with love and compassion, allowing them to grow up in a nurturing environment. Our mission is not just to rescue children from abject poverty, but to enable the children to develop and realize their potentials.
Results: Now, in its seventh year, Nepal Orphans Home (NOH) operates five homes (known locally as Papa’s Houses) for 130 children in Dhapasi, in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. An active volunteer program, Volunteer Nepal, draws talented, compassionate people of all ages from around the world. In 2011 over 100 volunteers from a dozen countries served, several returning from the previous year.
Programs: Teaching, Medical Assistance, Community Outreach, Orphanage Assistance, Cultural Exchange
I have had 2 daughters volunteer with VN and decided to go and visit myself before committing. What I found was an environment of love and trust that far exceeded my expectations.
I happily donate as often as I can knowing the money goes to where it is needed rather than into the pockets of unscrupulous operators.
I would have no hesitation recommending VN to anyone and would be happy to endorse them in my capacity as teacher at Bendigo Secondary College Australia.
