Provide loving homes for homeless Nepali children

The children at J and K House continue to thrive

Two Full Circle Success Stories

Dinesh lived on the street with his infant sister when he was about five or six years old. They were eventually admitted to a not-very-good government orphanage, where they spent their early years. After identifying his academic talent, the government asked that Dinesh be admitted to the J House.

Fast-forward to today and Dinesh is married and the CEO of an excellent new school that J and K House kids attend! A full circle – the former street child overseeing the education of kids at the home where he grew up and which gave him the opportunity to evolve into a whole, happy, and successful adult

The second story is a success story in the making. Raju was born with a condition called extrophy – he had no bladder, his intestines were exposed, and his hipbones were not joined. His mother could not afford to care for him, and because of his condition he was kept home, unable to attend school.

Today, years after a miraculous surgery in the US and being taken into the J House, Raju is a law student who with a group of other students just successfully filed a case in the Supreme Court of Nepal against child labor.
