Amazing achievement

There has been a lot going on at our children's centres in Birgunj recently!

First, the most exciting news - our Subash has just passed his college exams and will be getting ready for his university next year! He was one of the first boys that joined our Children's Home in 2013 and is now working as a Project Assistant part time and continuing his studies. We just couldn't be prouder. 

We have been very busy trying to help a number of children through our Child Helpline. We are now working with a fantastic organisation, the Starlight Foundation Nepal funded by Justice Ventures International, who are helping us file the case against a senior army officer who, together with his wife, was responsible for abuse, torture and forcing a child to work. Many politicians from the ruling party in Nepal and other influential organisations are still trying to put pressure on us not to do anything. The little boy had horrendous burns on his legs and bruises all over his body. We have done a number of psychological assessments with the boy and after spending two weeks at the hospital, he is with us now. Luckily, he seems to be a very happy boy now. At the moment the case has been filed and police are supportive so hopefully the man will be prosecuted. If not, our amazing lawyers will ensure that we can bring a private prosecution. 

We are now starting a new part of the project focusing on the child labour cases in Birgunj. We have done initial surveys and investigation and 4 new boys joined us in the past week. We need to do more investigation on other cases and we will accept new children and work out best plans for their future when appropriate. 

The winter is starting now in Nepal so we are focusing even more on ensuring there are no children on the streets.

We will keep you updated on all the new children in our next report.

Thank you so much for all the support!!!
