    Update-- Indentured Daughters Program
    By - Olga Murray - Project leader
    The goal of this project is to rescue from bonded servitude young girls in Nepal who are more or less “sold” by their parents to work as servants in the homes of strangers far away from their villages. Our “modus operandi” was to avoid giving money to the parents because alcoholism is rife in the area. Instead,...

    January 2007 – dispatch from Nepal
    By - Olga Murray - President and founder of NYOF
    Dear Friends: Hello from a chilly but upbeat Kathmandu. There is a new energy and optimism in the air, as the decade-long civil war has come to an end.

    Christmas greetings from Olga in Kathmandu
    By - Olga Murray - President and Founder of NYOF
    Hello from chilly Kathmandu. Christmas is not observed in Nepal, so it will be an ordinary work day for most, but we “bedeshis” (foreigners) do celebrate together. We also have a non-religious Christmas Eve at J and K House, our children’s homes. Father Christmas comes in full regalia, with stockings for the small...
