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: In 2017 Nepal Orphans Home began its thirteenth year of operations, providing for a hundred children in four Papa’s Houses and two dozen young adults independently living in transition housing and attending college. Nearly half of the children provided for are former Kamlari girls rescued from indentured servitude. Volunteer Nepal, our affiliate volunteer program, draws talented, compassionate people, annually hosting a hundred volunteers from across the world. The Chelsea Education and Community Center began its fourth year of vocational and life skills training for older Papa’s House children and its second year of adult literacy classes to local women in the community of Dhapasi.
Programs: Teaching, Medical Assistance, Community Outreach, Orphanage Assistance, Cultural Exchange
My family first heard about Nepal Orphans Home through past volunteers. They raved about the wonderful people and the amazing organization. My younger sister decided to go volunteer for a year there following high school. I could not have asked for a better family for my 18-year-old sister to become a part of in a new country. Everything I heard from her about the work she did and everything I hear from other volunteers have completely convinced me that I want to go there too one day. Last Christmas, we started a campaign to raise money for the children there and we know that our money is going to a great place and every cent is used for the welfare of the children. Michael, the founder, is devoted to the children and their safety and every bit of work that is done for those kids makes a difference. I highly recommend this not for profit and donating to them!
