NHOC provides 14 orphans with a home, an education, and a promising future, and 6 widows with handicraft skills training and support, empowering them to become self-sustaining.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

NHOC seeks to provide a loving home for orphans and abandoned children in the Kathmandu Valley and surrounding areas. Through the love and personal care provided, these children become part of "Man's Big Family" - the ever-growing additions to a once family of four. Each child is given an education, medical attention, nutritious food, new clothing, school supplies, and multi-lingual language instruction. In addition, the Widows are taught life-changing handicraft skills.

How will this project solve this problem?

If NHOC can empower a large number of women to become self-sustaining, there will be less abandoned children forced to live on the streets. If NHOC could employ these skilled women, more women could be reached and there would be sustainable income.

Potential Long Term Impact

NHOC currently supports 14 orphans and 6 widows with plans to expand the program in the future.
