It has been an incredibly busy time for the Our Sansar team in Nepal. We are starting a new project in Janakpur this month and are also focusing on our existing projects in Birgunj.
One of our boys will be linked back with his family soon. Due to a mental illness, his mum was not been able to look after him but now she is married again and the husband is looking after her and is happy to accept our Adip as his own son. Adip also has a little sister who will attend the same school as him and he cannot wait to join them and help her with her schooling. The community are rebuilding their house that is in a really bad state at the moment, and we will provide beds, desks, educational materials and anything else necessary to Adip and his sister so that they can have comfortable lives. We will also support him with education and any further training that he might require/want in the future.
We had two new boys joining our Child Helpline in Birgunj - 8 and 9 years old children who were being forced to work in a hotel. They are staying with us at the moment and we are liaising with the family and the authorities to try and find the best possible solution for them. In the meantime they are receiving care, informal education and counselling.
We have also managed to send a sister of one of our boys to Kathmandu to our new partner's, Lily's Leaves, training and counselling centre to provide her with counselling and mentoring that she desperately needs, and then any suitable training that might fit with her skills. We will update everyone on the progress of the training.
We have some exciting news coming up soon so you should be able to read about that in our next report!
Thank you so much for all the support so far. It means so much to us and even more to all the children that we have been able to help.
