Safe to Grow, Protecting Nepali Children after EQ

It is nearly 4 years since the devastating earthquake hit Nepal, the world has moved on.  However, for Nepal, things will never be the same again and the children who we are working with are still deeply traumatized by the event.

Hari (not his real name) is now 16 years old and studied until grade 5 in school in the Dhading district, which was one of the areas mosted devasted by earthquake. Hari's house was destroyed and their land became unsuitable for farming. His parents managed to find work as daily labourers but they just couldn't earn enough to feed their family.  So, Hari moved to Pokhara in search of work.  

Hari found a job in a car wash garage, where his working and living conditions were appalling and his health started to suffer.  He was given one meal a day and a place to sleep but was not paid. One of our social workers found him and started working with Hari's employer to provide him with a clean and safe place to sleep and two meals a day.  Hari was keen to resume his studies but it was not possible for him to study in a regular school, so he joined one of our functional learning courses, where he studied hard and was a key member of the group.  These courses take place outside the working day either in the early morning or the evening in a convenient place for the students to get to.

Hari is now a full-time employee at the garage, living in better conditions and most importantly is now earning, which has enabled him to send some money home. He says that the functional learning course has developed his confidence  and now has a  hope for better future.

Thank you for support which has enabled us to turn Hari's life around.
