Our children and big family are well and doing good. The children have been doing great in school thanks to having all their supplies and finally sturdy backpacks to carry their belongings in. The students are working hard and are accomplishing a lot in their studies. Most importantly, they are happy and healthy. They are had their final exams back in mid-July and will have a one week vacation. They are looking very much to the holiday, time for play and relaxation. They have earned it!
In our village, everyone is doing fine and we are so happy when people choose to donate to our cause. We have been able to provide so much more for the children, including carpet for our house! This has made them very happy. We were very busy in the village, but now everything is finished and we have a very nice and beautiful church/school house in the mountain. Thank you so much for your prayers and great support to build this house and school for our children. We want to thank every donor from our bottom of the hearts of every villager.
I just received this email from Man, the Director of NHOC:
Greetings from big family and villagers. Thank you very much for your regular prayers, encouragements, supports, loves and cares.
Our children are doing well. Their studies are going well. We went to the village this past weekend, and thankfully were able to bring all of them. The children enjoyed the village very much - they are happy and refreshed. While they were in the village, we went to a house fellowship (church) with other children from the village. They taught them songs and our children helped others who didn't know how to read They were very happy and we feel blessed.
Now we do have 82 hours power cut per week so it is going to be harder for the children to do their studies. Even with candle light, it will be challenging. We need about $ 2500 for alternative light by solar panels for our big family. Please help us and pray for our needs.
Please give our regards, loves, and greetings to you and our Global Giving Family
Hope to hear from you soon.
With best regards.
Man and Big Family and Villagers
*** Please help us raise $2,500 to bring sustainable power to NHOC.
The children are back to school and working hard! They are doing well in their studies and in extracurricular activities through school.
One of our children, John Chaudhari, who is currently working studying in the 4th grade was named first position in the football match at his school. He was very honored to receive a certificate from the Red Cross and a gold medal for his achievements. We are very proud of his continued success.
We feel so very blessed that John has been with us since the beginning of the New Home for Orphan Children. He is from a rural area in mid-western Nepal, from the Tharu tribe. His father is deaf and his mother is handicapped - it is because of these disabilities that they do not have land. When he first came to NHOC, he did not have proper clothes and was suffering from severe starvation and malnutrition. His family could simply not afford to keep him alive.
Nowadays, John is good in health, studying hard, and wants to be an artist. Please pray for him and his budding talents, that his gifts will bring him great happiness and glorify him within his rural community - a great honor for this young man.
We are excited to continue our good work, and we are so thankful to those of you who reach out to support and guide our widows and children. Please continue your support as the need is ever great.
News arrives from Nepal with many highs and lows... but all with many thanks and well wishes to all our supporters.
The arrival of a new baby brings great joy to the New Home for Orphan children. Man and his wife, Kamala, have brought a new baby into the world. We are all ecstatic about this new little addition.
In news that bring us great sadness, one of the smallest orphans, Ashish (age 9), has fallen ill and is in great need of funds to help pay his medical bills. He has been found to have epilepsy and struggles daily without the proper medication. Please keep his health in your prayers.
The orphanage and the widows group are working fervently towards sustainability, now more than ever. They hope to soon ship their handicrafts to America to help generate profit, which will in turn provide more training and equipment for the widows.
On to better news... the children are finishing up their exams and will have time off soon for a few weeks before starting the new semester. They are always excited to hear news from America and other countries around the world where people are thinking of them.
All our love!
This is the first update for the New Home for Orphan Children in Nepal. We are excited and happy to report good news, including an actual new location for our work to continue. I have included an email update that I received in early September from Man Pariyar, our on-site director and founder:

Thanks to overwhelming local support from my home state of New Jersey, NHOC will soon be launching a new website for Modique Handicrafts which will allow for the widows to sell their unique handicrafts online and work towards a self-sustainable future for the orphanage. We hope that we will be able to share this opportunity with you as well.
Thank you to all the wonderful people who donated to our orphanage in Nepal. I speak with Man, our on-site director, weekly about the children's well-being, the status of the widows work, and the needs of the orphanage. While much progress has been made, there is still a great amount to be done.
Our great hope is that we will soon be able to expand to help other orphanages in need, to pass on the kindness and generosity that we have been shown to help other Nepali orphanages in need.
With great love and thanks,
