Growth 2008 – 2017
In 2008 we partnered with local Nepalis desiring to change lives among the undervalued and neglected of their society. As a result, we established a native team to launch a new orphan home and its supporting farmland enterprise. The 6-acre farmland consists of a goat house and crops such as corn and a variety of vegetables. The profits supplement our in-country budget which includes operating our orphan home in Kathamandu: now home to 23 children who were previously abandoned or living with relatives in unacceptable conditions.
We conduct human trafficking awareness training in several remote areas of Nepal where traffickers have been known to target victims, training young girls in how to avoid the deceptive practices of traffickers. We also operate a rehabilitation home in Kathmandu for young Nepali girls and ladies who have been rescued from human trafficking situations. In the slums of Kathmandu we operate a child labor response program called “The Children’s Hope Center” which provides nutrition support and education assistance to children recovering from, or at risk for, hazardous child labor.
