In the wake of devastating earthquakes in April and May 2015, thousands of people, including children, were left homeless and displaced in Nepal.
Our Sansar set up a transit home in Dhading to help the country’s most vulnerable young people in one of the worst-affected areas of the country. What we did included:
- Re-uniting the children with their close or extended families wherever possible.
- Providing the children with shelter, food and education to keep them from the streets.
- Rehabilitation of any children affected by the quakes or their home situation.
- Providing professional counselling (i.e. psychologists, social workers) to the children.
- Assistance to the families by provision of goats, sewing machines or anything else that they needed to set up sustainable income streams to be able to look after their children.
In 2018 we closed the project after gradual scaling down. We helped all the affected children return to their families or find permanent homes.
Support other projects just like this
We have partnered with a local NGO, Global Action Nepal, to train teachers in impoverished schools in Nepal using child friendly teaching methods. We began training teachers in 2013 using local trainers and expanded the training to more schools from 2015.
We have also been supporting a very poor all-girls school in a small village near Birgunj with a provision of a computer teacher since 2015.
