The population in this part of Nepal is comprised partly of people from the hill area who migrated as a result of government instability, as well as those who came in hopes of better opportunity in farming. However, many times families are unable to find opportunity due to the caste system. The population is comprised of 39 different castes. This marginalizes many families who are left with no hope of moving beyond their circumstances. Many children are abandoned or forced to work and provide for their families, leaving them without an education or hope of breaking the poverty cycle. Countless more are abandoned and left highly vulnerable to other issues.
Ram Paudel, overseer of Himalayan Home for Children, has a seemingly simple prayer: “We pray, Lord, let our children be developed mentally, physically and spiritually…” The work of Himalayan Home for Children is not limited to the girls who live within the their walls. They are living out the call to be the light of Christ in a very dark place. Most of the girls that they care for are double orphaned, which means they have lost both parents to death. In addition, they also come from a socially and economically marginalized people group. Because of this, representatives from the home ask that you pray with them for the safety of their girls.
Serving Orphans Worldwide travels to every orphanage we partner with to ensure needs are legitimate and 100% of funds distributed goes to the livelihood of the children.
This year, we have a goal to help improve the quality of care for these amazing children, and we need your help. Your gift will help provide education, a safe home, health, and adult mentors who can share the Love of Christ. Our promise to you is that 100% will go directly to the home.
