Stop Making Paper Orphans of Nepal Children

Volunteers conduct health workshop.

We host a lot of volunteers in Nepal, in fact, about 100 of them each year. Volunteers are an important part of our mission to raise awareness of conditions in Nepal and to bring new ideas and insights to our projects there. Recently we had a number of young pre-med school students who visited Orchid Garden and spent the afternoon conducting basic and health and sanitation workshops for the children. Basic concepts of health and sanitation are not necessarily learned in the home. Nearly all of the children at Orchid Garden live in slums where such foundation learning doesn't happen. For the children to stay healthy, strong and able to learn, however, these are crucial skills. I am attaching some photos of our volunteers in action. 

Thanks for your continued support of this project. Orchid Garden is one of the only options very poor, working families have for their children.
