Ama Ghar Displaced Children Fund

by The Ama Foundation
Vetted

Summary

Many children have been orphaned or displaced by the recent earthquake activity in Nepal. Ama Foundation is working with anti-trafficking organizations and the Nepal government to help find these children a safe home. We will be taking many of them into our Ama Ghar home, which can house 75 children - but we currently only have funding for the 50 children who currently live there. Please help us to raise the funds to take in more children and give them a loving home, an education and a future.

Challenge

Many children between the ages of 4-17 have been displaced as a result of the recent earthquake activity in Nepal. Some have lost their entire family and become orphans, others have lost the primary breadwinner in their family and can no longer be supported by living relatives. These children are all traumatized and vulnerable; this fund will help to provide them with a safe home at Ama Ghar, where they will receive counseling, medical care, food, education - and most importantly, love.

Solution

At Ama Ghar, our children live as a large and loving family with 8 Nepali staff members who act as their mothers and fathers. They are not only given food, shelter and affection, but we provide them with the best possible physical and mental health care. We support our children in their education to the highest level they can achieve. We ensure that when they leave their Ama Ghar home they have the tools to become productive Nepali citizens.

Long-Term Impact

The long term effect is that we will take in 25 new children who have been rescued from the earthquake and provide them with an education so that they have a bright future - and so that they can become productive citizens of the New Nepal that will rise up from this disaster.
