Due to new government legislation in Nepal, our drop in night shelter for street connected children has had to be changed slightly. We have reopened our centre in a new location in Pokhara and have made it more of an assesment unit, which will mean we will be able to reach out and help even more vulnerable street children.
After a thorough medical and well being examination, the children will be offered various treatments to help them reintegrate back into society. This includes counselling and life skills through alternative or mainstream education and help in finding them a job. Our first priority is to reintegrate them back with their extended family. However, where it is not possible or safe to send them home, we offer accommodation in small family style homes.
The aim of this centre is still the same; to increase the children's resilience, aspiration and ability to thrive and grow and rebuild their lives within society.
Please do watch the short video where Arjun, currently 15 years old, is featured having turned his life around after 7 years living on the street. He is now training as an apprentice metal worker.
Thank you for your continued support and helping us to change the lives of more children like Arjun.
