To celebrate International Day for Street Children on the 12th April we are holding a national cricket tournament where teams from 16 children's homes in the Hetauda and Chitwan regions will compete. This is a great opportunity for these boys to be part of a team and to compete with their peers. With the support of the National Cricket Association we want to make this day to remember for these boys and we need your help to make this dream a reality.
We currently have 19 boys in permanent residence and in an education program at our home in Birgunj. Living on the street has meant that these young boys have been unable to attend school, eat regular meals or make solid and lasting relationships. These boys are building new lives and with your help we can give them more than simply a roof over their heads. We can give these boys an opportunity to learn team spirit, sportsmanship and character and with your help a chance at a bright future.
These boys are working to create a better future. This is an opportunity for them to experience an event that for most other kids is a normal part of growing up. The teams will compete, and regardless of the outcome, each child will have been part of a team, and part of this wonderful event. Nepal's own star all rounder, Shakti Gauchan is our event ambassador making this a very special occasion. You can help us make this tournament a reality for these children.
By providing secure foundations and by supporting these children in their education, health and fitness these boys can experience the joy that sport gives. They will experience the confidence that comes with mastering the technical aspects of the sport, the thrill of winning, and how to lose gracefully. This is an opportunity for these children to develop in ways that they simply aren't exposed to in a classroom. We can help these children to break the poverty cycle, we need you to help us do it
