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
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!
