Dear Friends and benefactors
Project: “One-Sleeping-Bag-for one Life” by the “Bahini-Educare-Foundation-Nepal
First and foremost we would like to express our and our beneficiary’s heartfelt gratitude for your support which is vital for our work. Without all of you, nothing could be done to alleviate the suffering of the most vulnerable beings in Nepal and prevent immeasurable suffering.
Our gratitude is including “GlobalGiving” and the people who work there. They are providing us this important platform and their valuable advice.
In the year 2020 Millions more fell into poverty because of the pandemic-induced economic recession. Poor people are living on 2$ or less daily and our target groups, day laborers who live from the hand to the mouth are without work and any income or any social-net at all.
With our project “1 Sleeping Bag – for – 1 Life” we are targeting the poorest: namely; widows/single women with dependent children. These families live in rickety huts or makeshift shanties’ in the villages or in the slums. Their habitats are very basic and they don’t provide any protection from the cold in the harsh winter. We are providing these families with food and warm sleeping bags. With a filled belly and a warm place to sleep the most painful sting that poverty can induce, hunger and cold, is removed and these helpless beings deprived of any other support will be encouraged to face the challenges in their daily battle for survival.
Over the years we were able to distribute over 1000 sleeping bags to the most needy and this action prevented much suffering and at times this was lifesaving for some of the weakest.
With our recent action and thanks to your donations we were able to provide 30 families with warm sleeping bags. Small children are enjoying to sharing one sleeping bag, here they can spoon and cuddle and they feel warm and protected.
The sleeping bags are manufactured in Nepal and they are of good quality. They are handmade and this by underprivileged women. In this way we enhance sustainability and thus this project is benefitting the larger community as well.
It is our aspiration to help these vulnerable beings and we are inspired day by day by their grateful, smiling faces.
We cannot buy the smile on a child’s face, but we can make it a gift!
Thank you for your support
