Protect and Inspire Street Children in Nepal

 

Our work at Kidasha is all about transforming the lives of the children we work with.  I would like to share with you an update about one of our beneficiaries.

Amir was 12 years old when he first came to Pokhara from a remote and deprived rural district in the west of Nepal. His father had died leaving Amir as the eldest son with the responsibility to support his family – his mother and a younger brother and sister. As a result his Uncle brought him to the city in search of work.

Amir was identified six months ago by a Kidasha outreach worker during workplace assessments conducted in partnership with the city authorities. He is now 14 years old and is a welder in a garage. Although, he doesn’t like his job, he has little option as he has to support his family and sends the £50 he earns each month home.

Our outreach work persuaded Amir to join one of functional learning classes near the garage where he was working. Amir had never been to school and it took a lot of persuasion to get him to join the class each morning.   When he started he lacked confidence and showed little interest in actively participating. However, over time as he has gradually started to learn, achieve more and he is beginning to enjoy the classes. Amir’s confidence and well being have increased significantly.  Amir wants to take every opportunity to learn and he has set himself a goal to open his own repair workshop within the next 10 years.

Without your wonderful generous support, we could never have achieved what we have in Nepal but sadly there are many more children, like Amir who we need to reach.  So, it would be fantastic if you would consider donating again to Kidasha this Christmas.

 

Many thanks
