Protect and Inspire Street Children in Nepal

We very much hope that you and your family are still managing to stay healthy during these challenging times.

We are pleased to report that COVID infection rates are steadily declining in Nepal and the virus appears to be currently under control.  Most of the restrictions have largely been eased and schools are at last re-opening after being shut for 10 months.  And thankfully we can now get our work back up to full speed (with caution), as we are very conscious there could be a second wave at any point.

However, with months of no income and only very limited government support, many families have built up large personal debt and, with earning opportunities extremely limited, many remain in dire straits.  Sadly, this situation is unlikely to improve for months, if not years, and that increases the risk of the poorest children being forced into work, child marriage or living alone on the streets, rather than returning to school. And as a result, we are expecting there to be an increased demand for our street shelter.

One of our challenges will be to ensure that the children, particularly those from the poorest families return to school.  After such a long break from the routine of going to school some children, particularly those from the most dysfunctional, troubled families, are likely to also need some targeted social support and counselling to help them return. 

Considering the incredible success Kidasha has achieved working with the Education Authority, schools and families to reduce the number of ‘out of school’ children in recent years, we are very keen to prevent a serious regression in the progress made to date, and as such we have a new 12 month intervention project to help some of the poorest children transition back into school.  As ever to be able to implement this, we need to secure funding so it would be wonderful if you could consider making a further donation.

With best wishes and please keep safe
