Protect and Inspire Street Children in Nepal

We can't thank you enough for your continued support and interest in our projects.  Through your help we have managed to change the lives of many street children in Pokhara.

One success story I would like to share is

Amar (not his real name) was only 10 years old when he first ended up on the street after his mother passed away and he was left in the care of his alcoholic father. On the street, Amar quickly got involved in solvent use and was also vulnerable to abuse from older children. It took our outreach workers over six months to persuade Amar to try to leave the street. After an initial period staying in our rehabilitation centre, Amar decided to try and live again with his father who had since remarried. Although social workers worked to counsel and support him, his father and step-mother, Amar was unable to adjust to living in the home due to his father’s erratic behaviour and returned to the rehabilitation centre. He started going to school again and was an active member of the Children’s Development Bank.

Last year his father disappeared leaving behind Amar’s step-brother. At this point his uncle decided to take care of Amar’s step-brother and Amar began to visit them regularly building a positive relationship. Three months ago, at the end of the school year Amar started to live with his uncle. He has adjusted well and is happy, attending the local school as well as joining the army cadets. Amar is extremely grateful for the support he has received to turn his life around.

I see my old friends still on the street, addicted to drugs and involved in crime and know that could have easily been me.”

We hope to reach more children like Amar and with your help we can.

Thank you again for your wonderful support.
