Supporting orphanages (NEP-55)

Type: Socially Excluded Groups: Orphans - Country: Nepal

Brief description and main aims

Orphanages in Nepal are the only place for orphaned children to stay and get proper food, care, and education. These orphanages are poorly funded and lack of enough staff to take proper care of the children. When you volunteer with our orphanage project in Nepal, you will spend most of your time tutoring children, playing with them, and making sure they feel loved, cared, and well looked after. Through the attention you provide, the children can believe in themselves and work towards a better future. The children are also very enthusiastic about collaborating with international volunteers. Your invaluable contribution for the betterment of the disadvantaged children will be highly appreciated
Our dreams and goals for these children are to put them through university, so that they can get a decent job, and even migrate in the future. The orphanage works by the motto "If orphaned children are kept in a homely atmosphere and given love and affection then they will become good citizens of the nation".
