Global Giving fund has been successful to feed the kids at the orphanage in Nepal. With the help of the fund SESF has been feeding 12 kids ( 7 boys and five 5 girls ) and a care taker mother Dhanaya Maya Nepal at Child Welfare Home Khandbari for one year. The kids have got enough food to eat three times a day. They are healthy and strong.
Their goats which were bought 7 months ago with the fund have been getting bigger and bigger day by day. The two hens have already hatched and the chickens are growing.
The bigger children Kopila and Rabin have also been helping their mother in cooking and cleaning in their leisure time.
Little children Mr.Pujan Khadka and Mr.Santosh Dharji are growing. They are happy to find a loving and caring mother Dhana Maya. They Sometimes go to see mothers in Khadbari jail.
The life of the children has been running smoothly. They have prepared daily routine and stitched it on the wall. They follow the routine and do their activities.
They have a big yard in front of the house. They play there in their leisure time. Sometimes they play cassette and enjoy dancing. Almost all are graceful dancers and dance together.
Last November Mr. Michael a trekker from Ireland did volunteering works at the orphanage. He helped the children in doing homework's. Then last February, Natasha Weinberg from England also came to do some volunteering at the orphanage. She taught drawing as well as playing to the children.
Still we will have to do more to achieve our fund raising goal.

GlobalGiving Fund has brought a great change in the life of 12 children at Child Welfare Home (CHW) Khandbari. The kids have got enough food to eat three times a day. The children seem happy to eat their full, wear new school dress, have snack in the Tiffin break. Their old sweaters have also been have replaced into new ones. They have got a emergency light to use at night when there is no electricity.
This year in last October the kids celebrated Dashain, their greatest festival, at the orphanage happily. During the auspicious occasion they wore new dress, ate beaten rice with meat and bananas, danced in a group by playing their tape recorder. They received Tika (red marks on their forehead) and blessings from us. They had not got an opportunity to celebrate Dashan in such a happy way in life before.
Now the cook mother does not have to worry to cook and feed them. She does not have to go the forest to collect and bring fire wood. She can cook with gas stove in a short time. Thire toilet was also repaired last month for their convenient.
A hen has recently hatched 10 chickens. Another hen is going to hatch 9 chickens soon. The two goats are growing day by day. The cook mother works in the vegetable garden and grows green vegetables for the kids.
Now a days the kids need 150 kg rice (Rs.9000),fruits and vegetables (Rs. 4000) one cylinder Gas (Rs.2000), water and Electricity charge (Rs.1000) per month. We have been managing this expenditure from fund received from Global Giving organization.
Still we have to manage other expenditure like cook mother's monthly pay scale (Rs.4000) House Rent (Rs. 720000) children school stationery and other miscellaneous expenditure.
We hope to keep building on these past successes in the year to come. As you make your new year's plan we hope you will keep us in mind and think ways about how to get more involved in our project whether you choose to volunteer, donate online to our project or spread the word about the work that we do.
We wish you all a very happy holidays and hope you are celebrating with loved ones.
Global giving has revolutionized the lives of 12 children living at the Child Welfare Home Khandbari. After SESF received funds from the organization, we have been able to feed the children three times a day. Their old school uniforms have been replaced by new ones. They are very happy to own two pairs of uniforms. The cook mother no longer uses firewood for cooking due to health and safety concerns. She now cooks with a gas stove top for the children.
The orphanage now owns two goats and five hens. The goats are growing day by day. The three cocks have started crowing. The children wake up as soon as the cocks crow in the morning and start doing their homework. The hens are bigger and their eggs are going to hatch soon. The children enjoy feeding chickens and the goats.
With the money that has been raised, we have been able to lease a piece of land surrounding the house. The cook mother works in the vegetable garden during the day. She has planted green leaves, carrots, chilies, pumpkins, ladies fingers, and other varieties of vegetables. The children help her plant the vegetables in their leisure time.
SESF committee would like to thank our donors' for their valuable donations and we hope that they will remember our kids and our organization fondly in the future.
The 12 children at the Child Welfare Home Khandbari were shy at first, but they soon opened up with smiles. Project leader Tenjenath led us on a tour of the new home that the children recently moved into, and we got to meet the house mother that cooks and cares for the children. The home lacks many resources, but Tenjenath explained that SESF is working to provide basic necessities for the children like rice and school books. The overall atmosphere at the orphanage was happy and full of love!
Tenjenath explained the need for a sustainable source of funding for supporting the orphanage. Short-term donations or sponsorships have been an unpredictable source of funding for SESF and the children require long term support. SESF has invested in goats, chickens, and a vegetable garden that will continue providing resources for the orphanage. The fund that Tenjenath desires will generate interest to provide a monthly income for food, education, and salaries at the home.
The orphanage was hosting a celebration on the evening of our visit, so we feasted together on sweet rice and vegetable curries. There was music and the children performed for us, and then we took turns teaching English and Nepali dance styles to each other! Laughter echoed through the home well past nightfall, and when it was finally bedtime, we were sad to leave the new friends we had met.
