Our buffaloes have arrived!! But what's next?

By Lucy Boxall | Project Leader

WOW - so it has happened - the buffaloes have arrived!!!

It has been a long road of planning, making sure 1. we had the funds we needed to not only buy the buffaloes, but ensure we could properly care for them, and 2. to build and create their home!

With the boys in our children's home in Birgunj settled, happy (and strangely super eager to be at school and learn as much as possible!), we wanted to make sure our buffaloes had a home just for them too. 

Deepak and our local Nepalese staff have been hard at work preparing a lovely home for these new arrivals:

After all your generous donations and support during our Winter Campaign we’d like to introduce  you all to:

Motu and Chotu the buffaloes….

Speaking about our new friends, Apara, Our Sansar Children's Home Manager said;

“On their first night we tried to bring them inside to relax but Motu was too big for the gate!

But they’ve both settled in really well and seem really relaxed and happy. Plus the kids love them!”

A few buffalo facts:

  • Buffaloes have been part of farming in Nepal for centuries.
  • Traditionally they provide families with milk, manure, meat, hides (though don’t worry ours are purely being used for milk!)
  • Buffalo milk is highly nutritional.
  • They produce 15 litres of milk a day! – providing a great source of income.

Thanks to everyone’s hard work over the past few months we now have a source of income for the home, AND the children have a free highly nutritional source of milk right on their doorstep.

From all of us at Our Sansar, and all the boys in our Children's Home in Birgunj....

THANYOU!

But... it doesn’t stop there. Thanks to you all we are one step closer to our dream of creating self sufficient living for street children in Nepal, giving them a family home - enabling their education and ensuring they are healthy and have the best possible start at a future away from the streets.

With over 6000 children living on the streets of Nepal right now, this is no easy feat. But, with your help we can do it!

Although our buffalo campaign has come to an end, we have a number of other campaigns to help us reach this dream - and any support you can give us would be wonderful.

Head over to our campaigns:

On top of all that we have a new eco living focused project coming soon - watch this space :-)

And finally, if you want to get involved in the work we day, perhaps go over to our Children’s Home and get involved in a bit of DIY, perhaps you’re a teacher looking for a challenge? Get in touch! info@oursansar.org or find us on Twitter.
