Escaping Abuse in Nepal

Thank you for donating to GlobalGiving Little by Little Campaign supporting our Escaping Abuse in Nepal project.  We would like to share  with you a case study about a particular girl called Cithara  (not her real name), who has had her life turned around by our shelter.

Cithara is only 11 years old and has been living in our shelter for the last 6 months.  She  comes from an extremely poor family.  Her father was a rubbish collector and her mother was a daily labourer.  Cithara and her brother witnessed a lot of fighting at home and eventually the marriage broke down.  Her mother remarried and Cithara's step father began sexually abusing her.  Even though it was witnessed by her brother, her mother chose not to believe her, but sent her to live with her father and her step mother, where things still didn't improve.

Cithara had access to one of our drop in centres and it was here she told a member of our staff what was happening and for the first time in her life she was listened to and believed.  She was refered to our shelter, where she is now at last safe.  With counselling and medical help, Cithara is slowing healing.  She is enjoying being back in school and is working hard to catch up wth what she has missed.

Without your support we wouldn't be able to continue to run this shelter, so on behalf of the girls a big thank you.

 

With Best Wishes

Safe to Grow, protecting Nepali children after EQ

At kidasha, we continue to focus on protecting the most vulnerable Nepali children from absue and exploitation and we provide these excluded children with opportunities to help their personal development.

We are currently working with Sanjay (not his real name) at our shelter, who is only 11 years and has already been living on the street for two years.  Sanjay's mother left the family, when he was very young and his father remarried.  Their village was destroyed by the earthquake and his parents tried to find work with the construction industry in the rebuilding programme.  However, they weren't paid for their work and so fell on hard times.  They moved onto to work as farm labourers, but again this wasn't well paid. Their relationship was difficult and became violent, and as a result the children suffered and were ignored.  It was at this point that Sanjay, aged only 9 years, ran away and started living on the street in Pokhara.

Sanjay has been with us for 4 months and is slowly getting his life together with a regular routine.  He is no longer sniffing glue and his attendance at school is becoming much better.

With your generous support, we will hopefully be able to help more children like Sanjay.

Many thanks
