You bet! In 2013, you gave a life-changing gift to Rakesh!

Rakesh (2nd from left), was the first newly "orphaned" child to join Global Family Village about 2 years ago. He didn't have much to smile about back then. Today he is a well-loved leader, greatly appreciated and respected by both his new family and classmates !

Thanks to you! You have made a difference!

The year end approaches with a great opportunity to THANK YOU and our volunteers for supporting Global Family Village in Nepal.  Your support has made a great difference to the orphaned children, the preschool and the families of the community of Bungamati, Nepal. Your funding is also making a huge impact as we empower the entire village, preschool and orphanage to become self-sufficient, with hope for tomorrow! YOU have made this possible!

But we are not there yet; we still have a way to go.  We are helping to empower the community with income-generation activities and funding to support the orphanage and preschool, so that they can be totally self-sustaining within 5-7 years. We are almost halfway there!

Imagine giving the gift of self-sufficiency to a poor Nepali village! You can!

Make the difference today!

There are a few years left before the community can manage on their-own. They need our continued support, NOW!

  • $10 Covers school fees and school supplies for 1 child for 1 month
  • $25 will pay for shoes and a school uniform for 1 child to attend school
  • $120 trains community women as Early Childhood teachers

We thank you in advance for your time and consideration.  You make all the difference in the lives of the children of Global Family Village Nepal. 

Namaste, and best wishes for a happy, healthy new year!

September 2013 - New GFV Video Release!

New GFV Video Release!!!

Video Social Documentary Photographer, Karen Ande visited Nepal in February of this year and spent two weeks in Bungamati photographing our project, the early childhood program, and the children! She created a great short video that shows the GFV program in action! Watch the video here or at our website. Check out Karen's photography at www.andephotos.com.

Recently, our caregiver “Mothers” received training on child growth and development. Women from the community also participated in the training to further their own parenting skills. Other news from the community includes the expansion of our Home-Stay program for income generation, and continued plans to initiate additional income generation projects, which will help support the Family House and ECD center. And the elders of the community are continuing to support our program and their special connections with the children (see photo)

The Bungamati Family House has 2 new volunteers, Ms. Thi-Lan Johnson from Albany, CA (see photo) will be joined this week by Jessica Smith from Australia. Thi-Lan brings with her experience in living abroad, working with children, and a rich background in art and music. We are excited to have them both. Everybody benefits in a rich exchange of cultural and knowledge. (We are currently expanding our volunteer program and welcome volunteer and intern inquiries.)

Back in the U.S., interest in Global Family Village has been growing. Our Executive Director, Ms. Freema Davis resides in Berkeley, CA when not in Nepal. She has been facilitating outreach events in the Bay Area to gain support of the project. She has generated many new supporters and recruited two interns, Ms. Sunita Stablein, Master of Social Work student at Humboldt State University, and Ms. Jasmine Frye, Master Social Work student at the University of California Berkeley.

Your support is very necessary and appreciated. Your donations helps us to help the community so that the project and the early childhood program will be self-sustaining within 5 years!

Thank you so much! Namaste!
